The new variety of Rosa hybrida Grandiflora rose plant was created in France 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 product of the cross of the ‘Macivy’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,362) and an unnamed and unreleased seedling (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., pollen parent) was the ‘Wekamanda’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,591)....The rose plants of the new variety were approximately two years of age and were observed during October while budded on Rosa laxa rootstock and growing outdoors at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
According to the "Société Française des Roses, breeder cose is Meizanbaizt, however the US Patent states MEIzambaizt.
