The new variety of Rosa hybrida climbing rose plant was created during July 2006 in Lake Nebagamon, 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., the seed parent) was an unnamed seedling (non-patented). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was an unnamed seedling (non-patented).
A 2018 pre-release was limited to approximately 1,500 plants, mostly in Wisconsin and Minnesota.
Ploidy checked by David Zlesak.
Parentage given in the patent is Unnamed seedling x Unnamed seedling.
However, the hybridizer, Julie Overom, has provided the parentage listed here.
