In 1993 an unnamed seed parent was crossed with pollen parent ‘Ausgold’. The seeds produced were sown Jan 1994. From this seedling population, the best seedling was selected from which six buds were grafted to ‘Laxa’ rootstock. Selection criteria: ‘English’ style rose with good fragrance and disease resistance. This seedling (to be known as ‘Ausjump’) was further trialled and in 1997 selected for multiplication. Bud grafting was conducted each year to produce approximately 5000 plants by 2000
