Miniature rose plant named `POULrav`
Inventors: Olesen; L. Pernille (DK-3480, Fredensborg, DK), Olesen; Mogens N. (DK-3480, Fredensborg, DK)
The present invention constitutes a new and distinct variety of garden rose plant which originated from a controlled crossing between `MEIponal` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 6,810, issued on May 23, 1989), and an unnamed non-commercial seedling. The two parents were crossed and the resulting seeds were planted in a controlled environment. The new variety is named `POULtrav`...`POULtrav` was selected in the spring, 1989 by the inventors as a single plant from the progeny of the aforementioned hybridization.
Notes:
Cants of Colchester says the color of the blooms is warm butterscotch amber...
