The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) of the new variety was the `Noatraum` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,282). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) of the new variety was the product of the cross between the `Meibonrib` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,469) and the `Korimo` variety (non-patented in the United States). The `Noatraum` parent variety sometimes is known as the `Flower Carpet` variety.
