The new variety is a complex hybrid that was developed from the Rosa arkansana hybrids Morden Cardinette and Cuthbert Grant, and Prairie Princess.
Notes:
In September 1998, the Montreal Botanical Garden (Le Jardin Botanique de Montreal) carried out a survey of its roses' resistance to black spot, powdery mildew and rust. This is one of the outstanding varieties which showed a 0% to 5% infection rate. The data were taken on well-established roses.

Henry Marshall was the breeder at Morden through the 1981 breeding season. He retired 15 Sept 1981.
