The James Galway Rose was named in honor of a world famous flutist, born in Belfast Ireland.
These David Austin roses are said to be as beautiful and elegant as his music.
The tightly packed petals are a warm pink, shading to lighter pink edges.
The fully double flowers are magnificent!
It's hard to believe the amount of petals packed into the James Galway rose (over 100 of them).
Not only are the pale pink flowers stunningly beautiful but they are very fragrant with a wonderful old rose scent.
To make it even better; the canes on these David Austin roses are almost thorn-less.

This English rose takes a year or two (sometimes 3) to get going. Be patient with it and give it that long to establish itself, you will be greatly rewarded when you experience it's full potential.

It's on my wish list for spring!
