Rosa Mayflower (Austilly) is a famously robust and healthy rose, the blooms of which are held high above dainty foliage, which forms a bush comprising strong, twiggy growth. The repeat flowering, mid-pink buds open into medium sized old rose style flowers with a beguilingly strong, old rose fragrance.

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.


This variety was bred by David Austin to mark the launch of their American catalogue in 2001 and named after the ship The Mayflower, which, in 1620, transported a hundred or so Puritans from London in their search for a better life in the New World.
