The new variety of shrub rose, `BAIload`, designated as seedling No 97RMX1 was selected among seedlings derived from a cross made in Yamhill, Oreg. in 1991 [should be 1997] between the female parent, `RADsun` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 13,063) and the male parent, an unnamed intermediate seedling derived from a cross between `RADsun` as the female parent and `Noason` (not patented) as the male parent. `BAIload` was selected as unique and budded onto understock in August 1998 and reselected by the inventors for its distinct characteristics in 2001.
