I just wanted to bump this because the correct Coppelia is not present in the lineage.

"The new variety of Miniature rose plant was created 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 Meigurami variety. The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) of the new variety was the MAGIC CARROUSEL variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,601). The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows:"

So, Coppelia 76 and not Coppelia (1952) needs to be in the parentage.

This is perhaps the most disease-resistant rose I've ever had. It blooms beautifully all summer long, with hardly any blackspot. I'm not sure why folks aren't using this rose more than they do. It is a winner.

Debut produces a CONSTANT flush of blooms, one right after another whether you are particularly good about dead-heading or not. The edging of the petals on my specimen were redder than pink, somewhat of a blood-red ruby, cherry or hot pink tone that somewhat reminded me of a better known miniature, Betty Boop. As the description says, Debut is highly disease resistant. It gave me less trouble than most of my roses and was on a drip watering system so it didn't demand much attention to look absolutely stunning. I never saw any evidence of mildew, rust or even insect infestation. Wish I could say that for the 40+ other roses in my garden! Unfortunately, without any signs of disease or overt evidence of distress, it suddenly died on me this past spring. It didn't rebound after being pruned. The pruning was a tad heavier than the first years, which is to say not much more than the amount of pruning necessary to dead-head old flowers. This time, it was cut back a bit more but no more than 1/3. After that, all growth stopped and there were no blooms. It died. Perhaps it had something to do with being in a tree form and the fact that during that time no new canes grew at the base so it was just the natural attrition of very old canes that failed to replace themselves? I'm not sure given that I'm not experienced with the tree rose forms, Debut having been my one and only. In general, however, miniature don't seem to have longevity going for them and seem considerably more fragile than a conventional floribunda or grandiflora. Still, I like Debut well enough to attempt to replace it, which I am finding out is not very easy to do because it is not, apparently, commonly grown/sold. I bought my now-deceased Debut at Costco in the spring or early summer of 2006, but otherwise never stumbled across it even once.
