Gardeners' Notes:

Positive greenthum3 On Aug 28, 2009, greenthum3 from Jacksonville, FL wrote:

Small compact flowers with the slight fragrance of licorice. Nice pristine white petals are a nice contrast to our other roses. Delicate plant grows well in a container. I'm currently growing 3 in containers and they are doing well.

Never diseased in the 5 year's I've had it, died back substantially this winter from freeze, but is coming out strong. Love the fragrance and the nodding blossoms

Negative DonnaMack On Nov 19, 2008, DonnaMack from Elgin, IL (Zone 5a) wrote:

Yes, negative because of blackspot and mildew, but if you are willing to perform preemptive disease control (sulphur every week or so) it produces spectacular, wonderfully scented flowers continuously, and well into fall.

Neutral Joan On Nov 14, 2008, Joan from Belfield, ND (Zone 4a) wrote:

According to David Austin's 2009 Handbook of Roses, they named this rose for Glamis Castle, the childhood home of the late Queen Mother and the legendary setting of Shakespeare's play 'Macbeth'.

I love the blooms on this rose bush, but have had so many problems with it. One plant has already wasted away and another is soon to join it's sister. Each cane is delicate and often times cannot hold the cluster of flowers. The leaves are prone to black spot and mildew. However, the rose bush flowers repeatedly. The scent is mildly sweet. It's a beautiful rose so I may try planting these again, only this time purchasing "own-root" vs. "bare-root".

This is one of my favorite white Austin roses. It's got a nice low-growing form and it blooms all the time. It is winter hardy and is disease resistant.
