he new variety of Hybrid Rugosa 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 `Flower Carpet White` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,573). The `Flower Carpet White` variety sometimes is known as the `Noaschnee` variety. The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was `Frau Dagmar Hartopp` variety (non-patented in the United States). ... he rose plants of the new variety were approximately four years of age and were photographed during June 2003
