The ' Way of St. James ' rose

I walked past beds of beautiful roses called " The Way of St. James ' last year .
I am an enthusiastic rose gardener and so this variety would be a welcome addition to my rose beds and a pleasant reminder of my own Camino , the scent was extraordinary .
I haven't been able to find a supplier in Australia , our strict bio security laws obviously prohibit the importation of plants from overseas so this is not an option .
Has any member Australian found a local supplier for this variety ?

Maybe this isn't of big help as you probably already know this - but there's a rose garden located at the St.James Church in Mortlake, Victoria, Australia. Your profile states Victoria, Australia as your location. This site gives a Mr. Geoff Humble as responsible person who says that his garden has "[...] now over 150 roses, all with some 'churchy' theme". So if anyone can help you, it might be right him. Might be worth a try at least.

A big thank you HaraldS :)

By way of acknowledgement a photograph I took of this rose somewhere between Viana and Burgos . A great shame there is no scent button on my keyboard;)

It would also be good to know if this rose can be bought in either Spain or the UK. Anyone know please?

I recall seeing roses that look like these in various paintings of Santiago. But, I cannot recall which paintings or where I saw them... sorry about that...

I suppose if one mounts a Google or Bing search of paintings of St. James Apostle, the rose might present itself...

I also loved seeing this rose on my Camino . As an RHS member I have checked their website and it appears not to be available in the UK.
Maybe RHS could encourage the importation of the rose through the link @mspath has posted. :)
