||A new floribunda rose variety with flowers of currant red coloring.
1. A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the floribunda class, substantially as shown and described, characterized particularly by flowers of warm currant red coloring borne inlarge sprays and which maintain their color well through maturity.
||The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the floribunda rose class, which was originatedby my crossing as seed parent the rose known as "Royal Occasion" (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 3,824) and as pollen parent an unnamed, unpatented seedling of my creation. The denomination of the new rose is "Poulander".
Among the novel characteristics possessed by this new variety which distinguish it from its parents and all other varieties of which I am aware are flowers of warm currant red coloring borne in large sprays and of substantially unfadingcharacter. The flowers are attractively displayed against dense, dark green foliage. The flower's coloring is highlighted by good floribunda inflorescence form borne on a plant of unusually good disease resistance. Asexual reproduction by budding ofthe new variety as performed in Fredensborg, Denmark, shows that the foregoing and other distinguishing characteristics come true to form and are established and transmitted through succeeding propagations.
The accompanying drawing shows typicalspecimens of the vegetative growth and flowers of the new variety in different stages of development and as depicted in color as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same in a color illustration of this character.
The following isa detailed description of my new variety, with color terminology in accordance with the Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart (R.H.S.C.C.). The terminology used in color description herein refers to plate numbers in the aforementioned color chart,e./g., "46A" is plate 46A of the Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart.
