Inventor: Keith W. Zary (Thousand Oaks, CA). Assignee: Bear Creek Gardens, Inc. (Medford, OR). A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class... characterized particularly as to novelty by the unique combination of its high-centered red flowers presented singly (one to a stem), its numerous thorns, its vigorous, upright, well branched habit of growth, and its dark green leathery foliage. Parentage: JACara (USPP006316 [Note: Patent App. reads "6516"]) x KORlingo (USPP005846). The primary objective of this breeding was to produce a new rose variety having the vigorous, upright, well branched growth habit, clean healthy foliage and heavy flower production of the female parent combined with the well-formed high-centered blooms of the male parent.
