The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of miniature rose plant which has been given the international variety recognition designation "Brilin", and is to be marketed in this country under the synonym "Linville".
The plant of this invention was originated as a result of a planned breeding program which had as a seed parent an unnamed seedling which is unpatented and proprietary and which had, itself, resulted from the cross of my unnamed proprietary seedling with the commercial variety "Rise'N Shine", as pollen parent.
