I purchased four very beautiful English Roses called Glamis Castle from Heirloom Roses in 2015. I really like the own root roses and think this one will be a winner. Whew, it's been so hot this summer in South Carolina and I have to admit my gardens have gone without the care and grooming they deserve. Yes, I'm guilty of that but I wanted to share these young roses with you today.
I do like the roses that I get from Heirloom they may be somewhat small but extremely healthy and seem to grow and thrive in the hot, humid weather we have here. I might add without much care and I am especially grateful for that.

If you'll notice in the photo about you can see the difference in sizes that you can order from them. I have ordered both sizes and find that the difference in the prices doesn't mean as much to me as the size. Since, I find they are slower growing I like the larger size. You know I may be a little impatient to see growth and blooms.
The roses are packaged very securely and arrive very quickly. I ordered these in the Spring of 2015. The last photo above was taken just after setting out in the pot. You can learn more about the roses and how to plant at your planting time here
I love that the plants are so healthy when they arrive. You may remember that I've ordered from this company in years past and they are still living and thriving. I lost two but it was due to my own negligence. So that was my fault not theirs.
Garden was a bit of a mess with me moving and potting many things. I thought this row would give somewhat of an illusion of a fence open but still the look. This is the White Rose Garden.
This poor quality photograph was taken on an extremely hazy day. I include it to give you an idea as to how the lineup is in the rose garden. It was taken this month and you can see I have lots of gardening to do. They look a little bad due to my lack of care in this heat, but they are blooming their little heads off.
Just ignore the black spot if you will....
Amazing isn't it the way the buds vary from a medium to light pink and then bloom in white to off white blooms.
Isn't she a beauty? The color in the photo appears to have a peach tone but in reality it is a creamy white. It is a continual bloomer, which is a plus for me. This truly is an understated beauty and I think every rose lover should have at least one in their garden.
Glamis Castle is named after the childhood home of Queen Elizabeth, The Queen Mother of England and the legendary setting of Shakespeare's play 'MacBeth'. The rose has an old rose character and is pure white with a strong myrrh fragrance. Read more about it and you can also order if you wish here.
I hope you enjoyed seeing this beautiful English rose which was introduced in 1992 and is very beautiful.
I purchased these roses but from time to time I do reviews on products that I feel will be of interest to my readers. This is one and my Review Results for Heirloom Roses is Excellent!
