Help!! I have a huge drainage culvert at the back of my property. I am currently trying to develop it with a few low maintenance plants. I have quite an extensive rose bed in the front yard but I do not want to be spraying and pruning the area behind the house secondary to time constraints. I am considering anchoring the whole area with a couple of Mermaid roses. My questions are: Will it do well on an enbankment? Does it tend to be defoliated by BS? In pictures it seems to get quite large, which will detract from the unsightlyness of the culvert. I live in South East Alabama. High heat 8 monthes of the year and this year anyway No Water. If you have any experience with this rose in a similar situation please let me know.
Thanks in Advance
