Thank you viscount89. There is a question on the breeder (Carruth retired in 2012) and the introducer (Spring Hill in 2023, or Weeks)

I checked the registration on the Modern Roses database and it states that Christian Bedard is the hybridizer and Springhill Nurseries is the introducer. No year of introduction is given.
