The new Rosa hybrida variety of shrub rose plant of the present invention was created during 1985 by artificial pollination at the Central Experimental Farm, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the `Arthur Bell` variety (non-patented in the United States) and the male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the `John Davis` floribunda variety
chose to release this rose because of its unique peach color (rarely found in hardy roses), its excellent hardiness and its disease resistance...
Sam Kedem says this rose might also be used as a small climber.
Camille emailed: I found and purchased this rose in early July 2001. The rose developed black spot and lost its leaves. The only growth I had this summer was two long weak canes which grew long and lay on the ground. I have 'John Cabot' , 'John Davis', 'J.P. Connell', 'Hope for Humanity', and a Morden rose in the same area none of which developed any signs of black until late in September when the lower leaves on the 'J.P. Connell' did begin to be affected. I was disappointed in the color of the blooms as they were not what I would call peach . I hope it was just the stress of this very unusual summer. I will give it another summer before I dump it. Have you had any reports on this rose? I live in Minnesota zone 3.
