'Ausmerchant' originated from normal sexual hybridization of two unnamed English rose seedlings. The cross was conducted in 2002 at Bowling Lane Green in Albrighton, England by Mr. Austin of David Austin Roses Ltd. 'Ausmerchant' was selected by Mr. Austin as it forms a good, branching shrub that is healthy and repeat flowers extremely well.
