The pollination that led to the new variety of Rosa hybrida polyantha rose plant occurred in June of 2007, 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 `BAlpome` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,602). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was `Mountain Mignonette` (non-patented).
