Rosa 'Mermaid' (Yellow Climbing Rose) - This Rosa bracteata hybrid was raised by William Paul, noted Rose author and nurseryman. Rosa 'Mermaid' was the result of a cross between Rosa bracteata and a double yellow Tea Rose and was introduced in 1918 . This very vigorous rose grows upwards to 30 ft. or more. It has attractive glossy foliage, maroon stems and wicked thorns. The very large single canary-yellow flowers, slightly scented, with showy red stamens are borne in clusters continuously produced after midsummer. Although not a cold hardy rose it excels in mild climates where it thrives and blooms continuously even when faced with drought, salty sea breezes and shade. Its vigorous nature and rampant growth can be overwhelming in the smaller garden if not kept in check. See Rosa 'Mermaid' clambering along the fence along the north side of our nursery. Hardy to 15-20 F. Winner of the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit in 1993.  The information on this webpage is based on research conducted about this plant in our nursery library, from online sources, as well as from observations made of it as it grows in the nursery in containers, in the nursery's garden and in other gardens where we have observed it growing. We will also incorporate comments received from others and welcome getting feedback from those who may have additional information, particularly if this information includes cultural information that would aid others in growing  Rosa 'Mermaid'.
