Breeder's notes:
This is currently being offered in limited quantities by Rogue Valley Roses as a 2010 introduction.

Regarding recorded parentage: this is labeled as a 42-02 cross, with the parents Sequoia Ruby and Scarlet Moss. However, I have suspicions that this may have been a stray seed from another cross that got mixed into the 42-02s during sowing. The same year I sowed a cross of Suntan Beauty X Lavender Pinocchio and I suspect this is its true parentage.
