Varietal denomination Orawichkay; applicant Pierre Orard, Feyzin, France; assigned to Edmunds Roses, Wilsonville, Oregon
This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of shrub Rose, Rosa L. The varietal denomination of the new variety is `Orawichkay`. It has as its seed parent the unpatented variety known as `DIComono` and as its pollen parent, an unnamed and unpatented cultivar of the species rose known as Rosa wichuriana. It is believed that botanically, the new variety would be classified as a hybrid species of Rosa wichuriana.
