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.
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.
