Rosa ‘James Galway’ (Auscrystal) is an English climbing rose that was bred by David Austin and introduced at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2000. This rose was named after Sir James Galway, the celebrated Irish flautist.
I find that Rosa ‘James Galway’ plants produce large, frilly flowers that are so distinctive, they have a character and form all of their own, they’re instantly recognisable. This rose’s flowers are very beautiful, they’re pale pink in colour – a soft pastel pink colour at the flower’s centre, with every subsequent layer of petals becoming ever paler, so much so, that the outer petals are ivory in colour. The overall effect is very pretty.
Rosa ‘James Galway’ is a naturally strong growing rose that will grow up to reach a height of about 3.75m (12ft). This rose succeeds in any moist but well-drained soil. Plant in front of a wall or fence, in a position, where your rose will enjoy full sunshine or partial shade.
