‘Chaucer’/AUScer/AUScon: l’un des premiers rosiers anglais… Austin le considère un peu dépassé… fort bel arbuste pour petit jardin, avec ses bouquets légers de fleurs en coupe profonde, d’un rose un peu fané pâlissant sur les bords… fort parfum de myrrhe… feuillage vert mat, sensible à l’oïdium, cache des aiguillons rouges… Austin, 1970.

Varieties That Have Been Superseded.
English Roses have now been available for over twenty-five years and it is inevitable that some varieties in that time have been superseded by more recent introductions. I have no doubt that many people will protest that they have some of these varieties in their gardens, doing well and giving them much pleasure. In such cases, I would certainly recommend that they should retain and enjoy them.
Chaucer has fine, deeply cupped rose-pink flowers of classic Old Rose character. The growth is upright and bushy, with matt-textured leaves of a light to medium green. It sometimes suffers from mildew. 'Chaucer' was one of our earliest introductions. W 90cm (3ft) x H 100cm (3 1/2ft). Breeding 'Duchesse de Montebello' x 'Constance Spry'. Introduced 1970.
