The new variety of Rosa hybrida shrub rose plant of the present invention was created at Greenfield, Wisc. U.S.A., by artificial pollination wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the `Radorg` variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) of the new variety was the `Rader` variety (non-patented in the United States). The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows: `Radorg` .times.`Rader`.
