'Ausjive' originated at Bowling Green Lane, Albrighton, England, in 2000. This variety was produced by normal sexual hybridization of two unnamed parent varieties. It was selected by the breeder as it forms a good, branching shrub that is healthy and repeat flowers extremely well.

Named for The Huntington, the former estate of Henry Huntington, turned library, art galleries and botanical collection after his death. The gardens, dating as far back as 1903, are the source of many Old Garden Roses in commerce in the United States. The rose gardens also house some early finds by California old rose finder extraordinaire, Fred Boutin. Each year The Huntington hosts a "Great Rosarian Of The World" with the Brooklyn Botanical Garden, at which a world-reknowned rosarian such as David Austin speaks.
