Mermaid is a rose to take seriously. While it doesnt 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.
