Dreer of Philadelphia and given the name 'Everblooming Dr. W. Van Fleet'. Later this was changed to 'The New Dawn' and it became the first holder of a plant patent.

'New Dawn' figured in the parentage of 'Aloha', 'Bantry Bay', 'Compassion', 'City Girl', 'Dublin Bay', 'Étude', 'Highfield', 'High Hopes', 'Mornign Jewel', 'Parade', 'Pink Perpetue', Rosy Mantle', and 'White Cockade'.
