‘Glamis Castle’ is a pure white rose of typical Old Rose character. The flowers are deeply cupped with rather informally arranged petals. It flowers with exceptional freedom and continuity; its blooms producing a wonderful airy effect in the mass. It has an English Rose, myrrh fragrance. A relatively short and bushy shrub with numerous twiggy branches, upon which the flowers are borne freely. Its compact growth makes it a good choice for small gardens. It will benefit from some spraying against disease. Glamis Castle is the childhood home of The Queen Mother and the legendary setting of Shakespeare’s play, Macbeth.
