Features

notes

Bred by David Austin, this rose has the most outstanding array of multi petalled pink flowers that reveal golden stamens as they bloom. Rosa Ancient Mariner (Ausoutcry) would be lovely planted in a border or a container, where it can be positioned to ensure its strong, myrrh fragrance is appreciated fully.

Please note, our roses are available to purchase all year round, so depending on the time of year your rose may either arrive in bloom or have been pruned or deadheaded appropriately for the season.

Insights

The name of this rose was inspired by Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s epic poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
