Fairy Roses


The fairy roses are blooming! I'm counting on them to fill in my front garden; the deer won't touch them. I like to wear armor myself when I'm cutting them, the thorns are so fierce. But worth it!

I had some very lovely Fairy roses at my previous residence. Now I have Nearly Wild roses and they are not nearly as lovely.

Are these the roses that grow wild on the fence rows? We had them on my grandparent's place in Oklahoma, and I adored them as girl, gathering armfulls to bring inside in May and more on Memorial day to adorn the graves of loved ones.

Have you been successful to cultivating cuttings? I tried again and again to no avail, but I don't have much luck with roses anyway.

I haven't tried taking cuttings from these, since the bushes are generous about sending up babies nearby that transplant well.

Rebecca, we have some roses that look like these, climbing roses from Oklahoma. My husband's great grandmother grew them.
His family calls them Gribble roses (that was her last name). They are very pretty, small and many petals, but don't really have a fragrance, at least ours don't. We are in northeast Texas and they are going crazy growing along the fence.

My mom had two different shades, and I'm really wanting some, too.
