The new variety of Rosa hybrida Bedding rose plant of the present invention was created by artificial pollination wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. The female parent (i.e., seed parent) of the new variety was the `The Fairy` variety (non-patented). The male parent (i.e., pollen parent) was the `Frantasia` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 17,518)...The illustrated rose plants of the new variety were approximately one year of age and were observed during June .
