A new and distinct variety of shrub rose plant is provided which forms in
abundance on a nearly continuous basis attractive double cup-like
deep-coral-orange blossoms that self clean well. A spreading ground cover
growth habit is displayed. The plant forms glossy medium-green foliage
that contrasts nicely with the blossom coloration. The plant develops
well following asexual propagation. The resistance to Black Spot, Powdery
Mildew, and Rust is excellent. The new variety is particularly well
suited for providing ornamentation in small areas. It performs well as a
mass planting and when grown in containers.
