This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of Floribunda Rose. It was discovered in the autumn of 1998 in Dural, New South Wales, Australia as a mutation of the cultivar `PRObril` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 12,645).

(Jan 2006) Weeks Roses will be the sole supplier in the US for the next two years (though evidently they are willing to contract with other growers). Contact Weeks' retailers for US availability.
