Species Rose - Mermaid


‘Mermaid’ is a rose to take seriously. While it doesn’t have the objectionable suckering habit of its invasive parent, ‘The Macartney Rose,’ it is remarkably vigorous. It can be grown as a thorny, yet handsome mound of shiny, green foliage and saucer- sized, 5-petal, creamy yellow flowers. It will also happily climb into trees or over fences and is a good choice for smothering ugly outbuildings. ‘Mermaid’ is both fragrant and remontant once it is established.
