Per the patent information, "My present invention relates to a new and improved variety of single hybrid tea rose plant. It was produced by me from a cross of two unnamed seedlings which in turn had been produced by me. This new variety is of the same type as the variety Dainty Bess but has a pure white flower and is a much stronger grower." Kim Rupert
It should be noted that nearly all of Krebs's introduced roses involve lines developed from 'Cecile Brunner'. We do not know whether this rose comes from those lines.
