Orange blend Miniature.
Registration name: SAVagrand,  Savathoughts
Exhibition name: Happy Thoughts ™
Bred by Wendy R. White (United States, 1999).
Introduced in United States by Nor' East Miniature Roses in 2007 as 'Happy Thoughts'.
Orange blend.  Dark yellow with orange edges upper; yellow reverse.  None to mild fragrance.  Average diameter 2".  Medium, semi-double (9-16 petals), borne mostly solitary bloom form.  Prolific, continuous (perpetual) bloom throughout the season.  
Short, compact.  Medium, matte, dark green foliage.  
Height of 10" to 1' (25 to 30 cm).  
USDA zone 4b through 10b.  Can be used for container rose, garden or rock garden.  Disease susceptibility: very disease 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.  
Breeder's notes:
Bright color in near constant bloom on compact plant.
