  • circleLife cycle

    The Rosa Eustacia Vye = 'Ausegdon' (S), also known as Eustacia Vye English Shrub Rose, begins its life cycle as a dormant bare-root plant or potted specimen. Upon planting in late winter or early spring, it breaks dormancy, developing a strong root system and foliage. As the season progresses into spring and summer, the plant enters a vegetative stage characterized by rapid growth of stems and leaves. Following this, it transitions into the reproductive stage, producing buds that bloom into lush, fragrant roses typically from late spring through fall. After flowering, in the rosehips stage, it may produce seed-containing fruits if pollinators have been active, though many modern roses are bred for sterility or are propagated vegetatively. Finally, in autumn to winter, the plant enters a period of dormancy where growth slows or stops in preparation for winter, completing its annual cycle.

  • sproutPropogation

    • Propogation time


    • Rosa Eustacia Vye, commonly known as English Rose, is best propagated through semi-hardwood cuttings. This technique is mostly carried out in late summer or early autumn. The process involves selecting a healthy and disease-free shoot that has just begun to harden after the flowering season. Cut a piece about 6 to 8 inches (15 to 20 centimeters) long, making sure it has several sets of leaves. Remove the leaves from the lower half of the cutting and dip the cut end into a rooting hormone powder or solution to encourage root development. Then, plant the cutting in a pot filled with a mixture of peat and perlite, ensuring that it's placed in a bright area but out of direct sunlight. Maintaining moisture is critical, so cover the pot with plastic or place it in a misting environment until roots have established, which may take several weeks.
