This is not
the same rose as 'Bull's Eye'. My rose was registered before the hybrid hulthemia rose known as 'Bull's Eye'. Please note that my 'Bullseye' is a single word. The name is derived from the target-like effect the white eye makes and also my feeling that this rose is pretty close to my goals of breeding care-free and healthy roses as per the Oxford Dictionary's definition of the word "used to refer to something that achieves exactly the intended effect"
Seedling is very fertile and has been used many times as a seed parent. Seed germinates easily. Registered 5/25/2011.
Not overly thorny.
Sister seedling to 'Green 'n' Gold'
though they were not hip-mates (different pollinations, same Mum).
