A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the Miniature Class is provided
which originated by crossing an unnamed and unpatented Miniature rose
seedling with the variety Harriet Poulsen (unpatented) of the Floribunda
Class. This new variety has a dwarf growth habit and abundantly forms
attractive bright fluorescent pink flowers which are semi-double and borne
in clusters. Plants of the new variety are particularly suited for growing
in planters or window boxes and also are well adapted to greenhouse
