A radiation-induced sport of MEIggili (Peach Drift)

The new variety of Rosa hybrida shrub rose plant of the present invention was derived from the ‘MEIggili’ Rosa hybrida variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 18,542) through the use of mutagenesis followed by selection. More specifically, during January 2007 tissue cultured shoots of the ‘Meiggili’ variety were subjected to gamma radiation to form a population of plants which included various mutations. The resulting plants were rooted and transplanted during May 2007. Such plants thereafter were carefully studied and evaluated. A single invention was selected in view of its distinctive phenotype.
