Breeder's notes:
Much like 'The Fairy' except for the deep pink flowers with a pretty white eye.
United States - Patent No: PP 17,196  on  7 Nov 2006   VIEW USPTO PATENT
Application No: 11/004,920  on  7 Dec 2004
Inventors: Lim; Peter P. (Yamhill, OR), Nemko; Martin (Oakland, CA)
Assignee: Bailey Nurseries, Inc. (St. Paul, MN)
The new variety of Rosa hybrida landscape shrub rose plant was created at Yamhill, Oreg., U.S.A., during 1997 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 Miniature `TRObwich` variety (non-patented in the United States). .... The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the Miniature `JACcasp` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,719).
