A vigorous climber with single bright lemon-yellow flowers and bold copper stamens flowering on a wonderfully rich glossy green canopy of leaves which can be almost evergreen. This rose is virtually disease resistant and will repeat flower into late Autumn.
The overall effect of a wall of Mermaid is one of total beauty. You will need a good size wall or shed to cover, for it can spread 9 metres high x 6 metres wide and has very thorny branches.
Very tough yet alluring, the flowers are also fragrant.
Raised by Paul of Britain and
released in 1918.
