Hello, here is a red rose that was mistakenly sold as the "Malvern Hills" variety from AUSTIN. Which variety is it?
Thank you for your feedback.

Thank you for this suggestion which has just helped me with the identification, I have just looked at the underside of the petals they are red. I think in any case that it is probably a cross from the variety "Red Max Graf", the foliage seems to me to be quite robust.
I have just looked at the data sheet of the variety "Oso Easy Urban Legend" but the flowers seem more double.

Does Mermaid sucker if grown on its own roots? I've struck a cutting but if it behaves like its parent R bracteata, I won't dare to plant it in the garden.
Mermaid was commonly used to cover tennis court fences here (zone 9 or 10), but alas so many tennis courts have been sold for infill housing.

It regenerates readily from roots if disturbed, but I've never known it to sucker spontaneously.

Nope.

I think the best way to grow it is to force it to develop one main stem, and take all the thorns off of that stem until it gets about head height, and only then let it branch out. Then you can get a tree form of it with nothing at ground level oher than the trunk. Worked for me.
