The species Rosa wichurana, introduced from China in 1860, has contributed much to the development of modern roses, being directly or indirectly responsible for many ramblers and climbers, especially those with glossy foliage. 'May Queen' was bred and developed in 1898 by the American rose hybridist Dr. Walter Van Fleet. 'May Queen’ is a particularly vigorous Wichurana rambler that is suitable to use not only on arbors but also as a groundcover or to climb into trees.'
