Origin & Breeding History: 'Austew' is the result of a cross between the female parent designated 'AO/125' and the male parent, an unnamed seedling, both English Roses bred by David Austin. The cross took place at Bowling Green Lane in Albrighton, England in 1999. 'Austew' was selected by Mr. Austin based on its healthy shrub form, high number of stems for cut flower production and flowers with a good "vase" life.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Ausimmon' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2004/2202, grant number 17776. The trials were conducted by Stichting DLO, WOT-unit, CGN-Plantenrassenonderzoek in Wageningen, The Netherlands in 2005. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
