||A hybrid tea rose plant having vigorous, upright growth and attractive lavender flowers on long stems having a strong, damask fragrance.
1. A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class, substantially as herein shown and described, characterized particularly by its vigorous, upright growth andattractive lavender flowers on long stems having a strong, damask fragrance.
||The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the hybrid tea class which wasoriginated by me by crossing the variety AROpoiz (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 6,812), with the variety JACpurr (not patented).
The primary objective of this breeding was to produce a new rose variety having the deep rich fragrance, lavender flower color, upright growth and long stems of the female parent, combined with the dark foliage, fragrance and lack of thorns ofthe male parent. 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 damask fragrance;
2. Long stems;
3. Attractive lavender flowers;
4. Vigorous, upright growth; and
5. Small thorns.
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 Horticultural Society (London) colour chart, except where ordinary dictionarysignificance of color is indicated.

The reverse sides of the petals are Red-PurpleGroup 65D on their outer part with the innermost 1/4 of each petal White Group 155A. The base of each petal has on both surfaces a small (1/8 inch.times.1/8 inch), Green-White Group 157D half moon at the point of attachment. The major color on theupper side is Red-Purple Group 63D.
