In 1995 seed parent unnamed seedling was crossed with pollen parent ‘Ausgold’. The seeds produced were sown in Jan 1996 under greenhouse conditions. From the population of seedlings produced, the best seedling was selected from which six buds were taken and grafted to ‘Laxa’ rootstock. This seedling was given the name 'Ausbonny’. By budding, plant number was increased to 600 by 1999, and 5000 by 2002. Throughout the multiplication cycles this seedling appeared to be genetically stable. Selection criteria: English style rose with good fragrance and disease resistance. Breeding directed by D.C.H. Austin, of David Austin Roses Ltd, Albrighton, England.
First sold in United Kingdom May 2001.
