A Mermaid climbing rose when well grown is a truly spectacular sight. One of the giants of the climbing rose world, Mermaid can grow to over 30 feet (9-10 metres). Its single, broad-opening flowers with their canary yellow petals and sulphur coloured stamens are highly attractive to bees and other pollinating insects and cover the plant so little else can be seen in its first flowering flush in June. Flowering continues with regularity through the summer and into autumn making a Mermaid rose a real feature in your garden.
As well as size, the other remarkable feature of Mermaid roses is that their foliage is almost evergreen. These two characteristics make it a wonderful plant for cloaking unsightly buildings and for scranbling into medium sized trees.

As hardy as they are vigorous, Mermaid climbing roses are well suited for screening and for scrambling into and over large unsightly objects. They are disease resistant , tolerant of exposed positions and frost pockets and so are a must have in any garden large enough to accommodate them.
