The new variety of rose plant of the present invention originated from a controlled crossing in a breeding program of two distinct parents during the summer of 1995. The seed parent was the result of a crossing of an `un-named seedling` and `KORlima`, a non-patented rose variety. The pollen parent was the result of crossing `KORmarie`, a non-patented rose variety and the offspring of an `un-named seedling` crossed with `KORgosa`, a non-patented rose variety.
Dedicated in Laupheim where there is an annual Rose market.
