The Mayflower (Austilly)
David Austin Recommended Variety

Category English Roses
  (English Rose Collection)
Bred By David Austin
Color Rose Pink
Flower Type Double/Full Bloom
Size Medium Shrub
Hardiness Average
Fragrance Old Rose
Repeating Good
Special Characteristics Particularly Old Rose in character and also continuous flowering and completely healthy.

This rose represents an important new breakthrough in English Roses. It forms a small shrub bearing charming, medium sized, typically Old Rose flowers of deep rose pink. Its unique feature is that it is, so far as we know, completely resistant to blackspot, powdery mildew and rust. While it never produces a great mass of bloom at any one time, it does flower with a regularity seldom found in any other rose: it is hardly ever without flowers. The growth is bushy and unusually full and twiggy with small matt green foliage. An excellent variety to place towards the front of the border. Tough and hardy. It has a strong, Old Rose fragrance.
We have named this rose to mark the launching of our American catalogue and the opening, later this year, of our David Austin Rose Garden at Matterhorn Nurseries, north of New York city.
