Breeder's notes:
Though more petite than the other two ('Eyeconic Lemonade' and 'Eyeconic Pink Lemonade'), it makes up for plant size with its larger, and more intense blotch. The blotch starts dark pink when it first opens, and then changes to an even darker, more purplish color on the second day. Being a smaller, somewhat spreading shrub, I think that it will be most attractive as a tree rose.

The new variety of landscape shrub rose plant of the present invention was created by artificial pollination carried out in April/May 2008 at Bakersfield, Calif., U.S.A., wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. Each parent possessed a complex parentage as indicated hereafter. More specifically, the parentage of the female parent (i.e., seed parent) can be summarized as follows: <{`MORtoday`.times.[`Geisha`.times.(`KINbo`.times.`Macivy`)]}.times.(`- WEKblusi`.times.`SCRivluv`)>.times.mixed Hulthemia pollen. The parentage of the male parent (i.e., pollen parent) can be summarized as follows: <{[(`Orangeade`.times.`Auscot`).times.`WEKfabpur`].times.mixed pollen}.times.mixed Hulthemia pollen>.times.mixed Hulthemia pollen. The `WEKblusi` variety is the subject of U.S. Plant Pat. No. 10,188, and the `Auscot` variety is the subject of U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,215. The other ancestoral plants identified herein as well as the seed and pollen parents are non-patented in the United States.
Notes:
Not resistant to black spot and therefore not recommended for the east, south or midwest.
