Application on 22 Apr 1966
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 variety known as "Chrysler Imperial" (Plant Pantent No. 1,167) with an unnamed and unpatented dark red flowered seedling of the variety known as "Zulu Queen" (Plant Patent No. 363)
