||Hybrid tea rose plant having strong fragrance; large flowers presented singly; glossy, powdery mildew resistant foliage; vigorous, upright growth; and dense foliage.
1. A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class substantially as herein shown and described, characterized particularly by its strong fragrance; large flowerspresented singly; glossy, powdery mildew resistant foliage; vigorous, upright
||The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class which wasoriginated by me by crossing an unnamed, rose-red hybrid tea seedling, the parentage of which is an unnamed red hybrid tea seedling.times.unnamed lavender hybrid tea seedling, with `JACsos` (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 8,235).
The primary objective of this breeding was to produce a new rose variety having the strong scent, large hybrid tea flowers and upright growth of the unnamed female parent combined with the glossy, dense foliage and vigorous growth of the maleparent, `JACsos`. The objective was substantially achieved, along with other desirable improvements, as evidenced by the following unique combination of characteristics that are outstanding in the new variety and that distinguish it from its parents, aswell as from all other varieties of which I am aware:
1. Strong fragrance;
2. Large flowers;
3. Glossy, powdery mildew resistant foliage;
4. Vigorous, upright growth;
5. Dense foliage;
6. Flowers presented one per stem.
Asexual reproduction of this new variety by budding, as performed at Wasco, Calif., shows that the foregoing and all other characteristics and distinctions come true to form and are established and transmitted through succeeding propagations.
The accompanying illustration shows typical specimens of the vegetative growth and flowers of this new variety in different stages of development, depicted in color as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same in a colorillustration of this character.
The following is a detailed description of my new rose cultivar with color descriptions using terminology in accordance with The Royal Horticutural Society (London) Colour Chart, except where ordinary dictionarysignificance of color is indicated.
