red fairy roses?

i love these things!!! when all of my other roses look horrific from blackspot, my red fairies are full and bushy with gorgeous green leaves and smothered in flowers. they aren't fussy, grow fast and leaf out early here in zone 6b. a google search for them shows up barely anything, and i can't understand why not.

here's a pic of my red fairy that i planted 2 years ago. my other ones were planted last year and are almost the same size now. it's going to be gorgeous when these babies bloom!

I know a few people who do. You might want to bring this discussion up over on the main "Roses Forum", Red Fairy is a polyantha not a mini and I'm sure you'll find a few folks over there who will give more feedback (not everyone reads the Mini Forum, shame).
