A very special roseReview by BajanGal
Rating
This is such a special rose, beautiful form and it looks like it is made of silk. A spring purchase this year, planted in zone 7 in a south facing garden bed and it is as happy as can be...only a few months old and several fully formed roses already! No disease issues so far and a white rose is difficult to look "special" I have found in the past...but not this one! (Posted on 7/30/2018)
Constant blooms!Review by Michelle

I've had this rose for just a few months and it has bloomed non-stop! The blooms are small at this point since the plant is young but they are beautiful! (Posted on 7/18/2018)
LOVE LOVE these roses Review by Makes me so happy
Rating
I live in North Texas and this is my first David Austin Rose, it was small last year but this year it has gone crazy with huge roses and lots of them. I can't stop taking photos of how beautiful they are and I bring them inside and put on my kitchen table. I am a painter and I can't wait to paint them on canvas. I live in Zone 8.

Just beautiful. Review by FlowerMom4

Re-potted from root stock once since purchasing in July. Continuous fluffy blooms and healthy...in Zone 10b so I treat for black spot and has been aphid free unlike a few others. Lovely, easy to care for and blooms are gorgeous.

Wonderful scent but mind the thornsReview by Erica
Rating
Of the roses I've purchased from Heirloom Roses, this one seems to be the only one bothered by disease. It is placed on the same South-facing wall as my Evelyn rose but did get some mildew in 2017. The bush didn't seem to suffer much as it bloomed and bloomed and bloomed. I brought so many into the house to go on my table and dresser. The scent is amazing but mind the thorns when cutting the stems! They are wicked. It was planted in 2014 aside from the mildew has done really well here in central VA zone 7. (Posted on 1/22/2018)

What a beautiful rose. All of Heirloom roses come so healthy and I have never had a problem. The rose took to its new home and viola bloomed and made me smile. (Posted on 9/26/2017)
Beautiful BlossomsReview by Valeria
Rating
While this rose--and rose bush--are smaller than I'd hoped, the actual blossoms are beautiful. I think the non-vigorous growth may be due to its location. I will move it when the timing is right and see if it grows better. (Posted on 4/19/2017)
Amazing scent, creamy white blooms Review by Stella
Rating
This is a charming rose. Beautiful and so heavily scented of myrrh. Planted it by a seat in garden as was suggested. Agree with other review that says it is susceptible to powdery mildew~however mine is in a lot of shade, maybe if in sun it will do better. Very harsh thorns so be prepared when you prune or cut it.

Stays smallReview by Linda

Beautiful blooms but not vigorous in western Oregon, stays small. I love that it is scented. Left it at our old house and it gets absolutely no care. I'm afraid the renters will kill it. (Posted on 3/21/2017)
A Truly Beautiful White RoseReview by The Duchess
Rating
I am fond of white roses and this rose grew in my garden in Arlington, Virginia. It was OK but not spectacular. When I moved to the high desert of southeastern Arizona, it was one of the many roses I chose for my garden here. I couldn't ask for a more wonderful rose. Both the rose and I have been very happy with each other for the past ten years. "Glamis Castle" lives in almost full sun and, like all my roses, is fertilized with harvested rain water and well rotted horse manure. The plant is still vigorous, disease-free, has grown to four feet and blooms continuously. The fragrance is a true joy both outdoors and in the house, as most white roses have little or no fragrance.

Pretty Hardy RoseReview by Nicole
Rating
I purchased 9 David Auston roses about 7 months ago, and Glamis Castle (along with St. Cecelia) started blooming right away. It still looks like a baby rose bush, but the white roses look so beautiful and charming against the dark foliage. I'm excited to see to mature. I can't water the roses as much as I would like (CA drought) but this rose seems to be surviving and producing just fine. (Posted on 11/18/2016)
a little extra workReview by Evelyn
Rating
This rose has a beautiful,musky, elegant scent and beautiful blooms. It also grows well. However, I find that of all the roses I've purchased and planted in the past 2-3 years (over 25 and 3 from this site), this one is very susceptible to powdery mildew and seems to spring up at least 3-4 times in the summer and is difficult to get rid of.

First time purchase Review by Maria

I purchased two Glamis castle roses and 3 heritage roses in banded pots. It's only been a month and they've grown quite a bit and have bloomed already. There are plenty of buds on them right now. I am really pleased. (Posted on 6/27/2014)
