This is the sister seedling to Mr. Moore's "Rise'n Shine". This rose is more of a climbing miniature, where Rise'n Shine is a bush. This rose was entered into the AARS trials prior to introduction as a climbing miniature, but was found to be very good for breeding and withdrawn. Where Rise'n Shine produces more white seedlings, 1-72-1, Mr. Moore's code number for this rose, produces more yellow offspring. It was found to be susceptible to mildew, but passes on not only good, bushy, heavily blooming plants, with deeper colors, but also good disease resistance. It has never been released commercially. As a point of interest, Rise'n Shine's code number as 1-72-2. Kim Rupert
