Breeder's notes:
The rose is easy to grow and roots easily. The blooms are generous once the plant matures in about a year or so, although the color is weather sensitive--high heat will lighten the pink significantly.

The name is dervied from a Celtic spirit who is both mischievous and benevolent--think of the invisible rabbit in the play 'Harvey,' or the movie with Jimmy Stewart. This is a rose absolutely crying to be planted for mass effect color.
