The denomination of the new variety is `KORconvent`. The new variety of rose plant of the present invention originated from a controlled crossing in a breeding program of two distinct parents during the summer of 2004. The crossing was between `KORunrok`, a non-patented rose, and an `un-named seedling`.
This rose was introduced by Ludwig's Roses in South Africa on the occasion of the World Federation of Rose Societies 16th World Rose Convention in South Africa in October 2012.
