Bred by David Austin, Young Lycidas (Ausvibrant) is the most beautiful repeat flowering shrub. Large, cupped magenta flowers with the outer petals tending towards light purple in colour, have an almost silvery quality that, coupled with a vibrant tea and Old Rose scent make this rose rather special.

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.


The Friends of Milton's Cottage asked David Austin to name this rose to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the poet John Milton. ‘Lycidas’ is thought by many to be one of the finest short poems in the English language.
