The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class, which was originated by me by crossing the rose variety known as "Sunrise-Sunset" (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,244) which I have chosen to identify in my breeding records as No. 6651-12 with a rose variety known as "Peace" (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 591), the seedling No. 6651-12 being the seed parent and the pollen parent being the variety "Peace".
US Patent states parentage as Sunset-Sunrise X Peace, 'Sunset-Sunrise' being Tiffany X (seedling X Happiness)
