Light pink Floribunda.
Bred by W. Kordes & Sons (Germany, before 1990).
Floribunda, Miniature, Patio.  
Light pink.  Mild fragrance.  12 petals.  Average diameter 2".  Medium to large, semi-double (9-16 petals), cluster-flowered, in small clusters, flat bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Short, compact, spreading.  Glossy, dark green foliage.  
Height of 1' to 30" (30 to 75 cm).  Width of 1' to 2' (30 to 60 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for container rose, garden or ground cover.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Harkness Roses says this rose is a bushier version of the ever-popular 'The Fairy', with larger flowers...

Named for the Queen Mother's 90th birthday... to benefit the Royal United Kingdom Beneficent Association, of which she is Royal Patron.
