It is named after my wife Ingrid.
"Fuchs" (Fox in English) is her maiden name. We may introduce this rose in the near future, as many people like the color combination of pink/cream with pink edges. Some times it's more red then pink, depending on the weather. The blooms open with HT form and when fully open look like an old fashion rose.
The interesting part is, that again (just as Buffy Sainte-Marie) it comes from a cross of two miniature roses.
