Breeder's notes:
This rose is the product of a seedling ([ Shadow Dancer (LCL, Moore 1998) × Fingerpaint]) gift from Paul Barden in 2012 or some year shortly after that. It was a miniflora with no vigor that he wanted to see what could happen with it. In other words, a pet project to improve a weak rose with unique color and background. It took 2 generations to create something remotely commercial. I think it is quite cute. It is, however, quite sterile due to its small, overly double blooms.

His seedling may have been the reverse position of the parents. I am unsure.

I rarely add my hybrids to HMF for many reasons, but I am leaving this as a case study for future breeders.

The mother rose of my seedling is an 8' semi-dwarf climber in Pernet amber and striped with Pernet orange. The father rose of my seedling is a semi-climbing, semi-double miniflora in neon orange and bright silver, with typical kordesii foliage type. The product listed here is void of any climbing tendency. Unlike both of its parents, it has an unusual amount of petals. A trait coming from either or both 'Lafter', via Rosa wichurana, or 'Toprose' wanting to sometimes produce an excess of petals.
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
