Galway Bay Modern Climber Rose

Galway Bay is a lovely modern climbing rose with the great advantage of continuous flowering without loss of plant vigour.  The dark salmon pink flowers are large and cupped, quite reminiscent of camellia blooms with overlapping petals, and are carried on a neat tidy plant from spring until early autumn. The scent has a true 'old rose' quality and the foliage is mid to dark green on strong stems that will eventually reach a height of 10ft to 12ft. Although it will tolerate light shade, this rose is happiest in full sun.

How to use Galway Bay

Galway Bay, with its neat and tidy growth habit, can be used in any situation; against a house wall, on a pillar, a pergola or trellis, or to cover a low wall where continuous flowering is essential.  The glorious colour of the beautiful salmon pink flowers looks absolutely stunning when planted against red brick as the terracotta of the bricks accentuates tints within each bloom.  Use it also planted with single flush climbers and ramblers to extend the flowering season.

Did you know?

Galway Bay was bred by Sam D McGredy, the fourth Sam McGredy in a family of rose growers first established in 1880.  His father died when he was just 2 years old, in 1934, at the age of 18.  Sam studied in the United States, returning eventually to Reading and then, finally, home to Portadown in Northern Ireland in 1952 to take over the family business.  During the troubles in Ulster during the early 1970s he decided to move his family and the entire business to Auckland in New Zealand. One of the highlights of his career was when he received permission from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, President of the Royal National Rose Society, to name a rose in her honour.  This rose is Elizabeth of Glamis, introduced in 1963.
