Rosa 'Ausmas'

Rosa 'Ausmas'

Botany Photo of the Day will have brief written entries on weekends, holidays and my vacations from April through September. – Daniel

Thank you to Lorraine E. of Chicago, Illinois for submitting today's photograph – much appreciated!

The Kemper Center for Home Gardening has an excellent factsheet for Rosa 'Ausmas'.


Rosa 'Ausmas' - Z5-9 - Kemper Center for Home Gardening

This photograph was taken by my mother, Claire E., of Seattle, Washington. The rose is from her garden.

Thet's weird they say on the fact sheet that the variety is GRAHAM THOMAS, what's 'Ausmas' in that case. It sounds pretty much like Latvian (that'd be of dawn), I thought they never did rose cultivation to any greater extent in Latvia..

Beautiful! I wish I could SMELL it!!!

The name/designation "Ausmas" is the "name" used by the breeder during the early stages when the rose is developed. When it is ready to launch to the market it is usually given a proper name like Graham Thomas or some other worthy cause. AUS is short for Austin roses like HAR tells us that it is bred by Harkness
