Rosa The Lark Ascending = 'Ausursula' PBR is a hardy deciduous shrub rose which produces semi-double apricot flowers from buds with slightly frilled sepals that create a feathery effect. Fragrance is light with hints of myrrh and tea. It is best planted in moist, well drained soil, and grows to an ultimate height of 1.1m - 1.5m in 2 - 5 years.

Named after Ralph Vaughan Williams' classical piece of music which was inspired by George Meredith's poem of the same name.
