Light pink Floribunda.
Registration name: KORatomi
Exhibition name: Fortuna ®
Bred by W. Kordes & Sons (Germany, 2002).
Introduced in Canada by Palatine Roses in 2007 as 'Fortuna'.
Floribunda.  Vigorosa® Collection.  
Salmon-pink, white center.  None / no fragrance.  Average diameter 1.5".  Small, single (4-8 petals), cluster-flowered, in large clusters, cupped-to-flat bloom form.  Blooms in flushes throughout the season.  
Short, bushy, compact, dense, spreading, upright, well-branched.  Small, glossy, dark green, dense foliage.  
Height of 2' to 28" (60 to 70 cm).  Width of 16" (40 cm).
USDA zone 6b through 9b (default).  Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, garden or landscape.  Heat tolerant.  Disease susceptibility: very disease resistant, very blackspot resistant., very mildew resistant.  Remove spent blooms to encourage re-bloom.  Spring Pruning: Remove old canes and dead or diseased wood and cut back canes that cross. In warmer climates, cut back the remaining canes by about one-third. In colder areas, you'll probably find you'll have to prune a little more than that.  
Ideal for beds and mass plantings. Excellent for public green. Despite the single blooms the abundance of flowers has a good distance effect with a continual production until fall. The foliage has an excellent degree of disease resistance.
This variety has been decorated with awards (Gold-, Silver and Bronze Medal) in international rose competitions.
