The new variety of Rosa hybrida Miniature rose plant was created by artificial pollination wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) of the new variety was the `Meitomkin` variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the product of the cross of the `Savalife` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 5,482) and the `Meivoufal` variety (U.S. Plant patent application Ser. No. 10/844,340, filed May 13, 2004).
