The new variety of Rosa hybrida Grandiflora rose plant was created in France 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) was the product of the cross of the ‘Meironsse’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,496) and the ‘Meipsilon’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., pollen parent) was a non-patented unnamed and unreleased seedling....The rose plants of the new variety were approximately two years of age and were observed during June while asexually reproduced from cuttings and growing outdoors on their own roots at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
