SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The new variety of Rosa hybrida Hybrid Tea Rose plant was created 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 `MEIBDEROS` variety (U.S. Plant Patent Application Publication No. 2007/0011786, Abandoned). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the `RADRAZZ` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,836).
