The new variety of Rosa hybrida landscape shrub rose plant of the present invention was created during 2001 at Greenfield, Wis., U.S.A., by open pollination in a rose garden setting at my home....The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the ‘Angel Rose’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The female parent is a Polyantha rose and sometimes is identified as ‘Minima’. The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) is unknown.
