'Glamis Castle' is a rose that I bought on reputation alone. I'd never actually seen the flowers in person, nor smelled it. Some people love the fragrance, some hate it. Passionately. When the first flower bloomed, I took a sniff and got a strong hit of mothball. The new stems that formed also were incredibly thorny. I almost tossed the plant. But because this rose is supposed to tolerate heat, I kept it, in a pot.
