Hybrid Foetida, Hybrid Nitida, Hybrid Rugosa, Hybrid Spinosissima, Shrub, Species Cross.
Light pink. Average diameter 2.5". Small to medium, moderately full, old-fashioned, quartered bloom form. Small, rounded buds.
Armed with thorns / prickles, bristly . Medium, matte, medium green foliage.
USDA zone 3b and warmer. Very hardy. Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant, very blackspot resistant., very mildew resistant, very rust resistant. Do not spray.
This cross contains genes from R. nitida, R. rugosa rubra, R. cinnamomea, R. spinosissima, R. laxa and R. foetida persiana. The plan for this cross was to create an extremely hardy rose that is very disease resistant and that has a blossom in a shade of yellow. Some repeat bloom would be excellent. This seedling should be hardy to zone 3 but that needs to be verified.
