The new variety of Rosa hybrida Grandiflora rose plant of the present invention was created in June 2001 at Greenfield, Wis., U.S.A., 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., seed parent) was the ‘Harwelcome’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,161), and the male parent (i.e., pollen parent) was the unreleased ‘Radorg’ variety (non-patented in the United States).
