The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the ‘Meirestif’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., pollen parent) was the product of the cross of the ‘Meicapinal’ variety (non-patented in the United States) and the ‘Ausmas’ variety (non-patented in the United States)....
The rose plants of the new variety were approximately two years of age and were observed during May while asexually reproduced from cuttings and growing outdoors on their own roots at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
