GLAMIS CASTLE – David Austin shrub rose released in the early years of the development of these wonderful roses.
Raised by David Austin, UK, 1992 by a crossing of two magnificent roses in the English Roses series: Graham Thomas x Mary Rose and this beautiful rose possesses great qualities from both parents – the lovely cupped shape from the father Graham and massive petal formation and fragrance from the mother, Mary. One might ask, how do you get a nearly pure white rose from yellow and pink parents? … Oh, the mystery of the roses!
Glamis Castle has small clusters of pure white, highly myrrh fragrant blooms with clotted creamy centres as the blooms first open. To really enjoy the magnificent perfume this rose exudes, a cluster planting of three or more plants is ideal – the shrub can be a bit leggy so the plants would support each other in this situation.
This rose excels in the hottest of weather and although it still performs exceedingly well in the wet and cool climate, it may need a bit of TLC as it can succumb to powdery mildew in extreme conditions.
