  • Origin of Name

    We were asked by The Friends of Milton's Cottage to name this rose to mark the 400th anniversary of the birth of the poet John Milton. ‘Lycidas’ is one of the finest short poems in the English language. Interestingly, it was Milton who introduced the word ‘fragrance’ into the English language.
