Bred by James A. Sproul (United States, before 2022).
Hybrid Hulthemia persica, Miniature.  
Pink blend, rose-pink center.  Mild fragrance.  5 petals.  Average diameter 1".  Small to medium, single (4-8 petals), in large clusters bloom form.  Moderate, blooms in flushes throughout the season.  Small, ovoid buds.  
Medium, spreading.  Medium, semi-glossy, medium green foliage.  

Height: 18" to 3' (45 to 90cm).  Width: 18" to 3' (45 to 90cm).
Can be used for beds and borders, container rose, garden or landscape.  Disease susceptibility: mildew 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.  Can be pruned to maintain a shorter habit.  
Patent status unknown (to HelpMeFind).
The name “cuteness” really fits this cute little rose and it is named in honor of my niece, Kirsti Sproul. Her nickname of course is “Cuteness” and the name fits her as well.
