Spontaneous mutation: ‘Noasplash’ was a spontaneous mutation from the rose variety ‘Noamel’ that was discovered by Sean Arkinstall at his nursery in Gisborne, VIC in Feb 2006. Cuttings were taken from the mutation to establish a trial. Further cuttings were taken later in 2006 to determine stability. In 2008 cuttings were taken from this trial to establish the commercial viability of the new variety by Flower Carpet Pty Ltd in a trial at Silvan, VIC. All subsequent generations have proven to be stable from the original parent.
