We live in zone 4, which actually borders on zone 5; when and what do I do to prepare my Fairy Roses (rosa x 'the fairy') for winter?

The Fairy is a small bush with exceptional dark-green foliage and small (1/2") light pink flowers that occur in large clusters. The Fairy was the first of the groundcover roses and it has a distinct tendency for its canes to grow horizontally or downward. No special preparation is necessary for this hardiest of groundcover-type rose, but you may mulch if you wish after the ground has frozen. Use pine boughs or straw as mulch material.
