Abstract: A new variety of floribunda rose having bright red flowers produced in clusters.
Claim: I claim:

1. A new and distinct variety of rose plant of the floribunda rose class, substantially as shown and described.

The present invention relates to a new and distinct variety of rose plant of the floribunda rose class, which was originated by my crossing as seed parent the variety known as `Mary Sumner` and as pollen parent the variety known as `PreciousPlatinum`. The varietal denomination of this new rose is `MacSoda`.

Among the novel characteristics possessed by this new variety which distinguishes it from its parents and all other varieties of which I am aware are its attractive red flowers of pure coloration borne in small clusters on a plant suitable forgrowing outdoor in gardens.

Asexual reproduction by propagation by budding of the new variety as performed in Smith County, Tex. shows that the foregoing and other distinguishing characteristics come true to form and are established and transmitted through succeedingpropagations.


The accompanying illustration shows typical specimens of the vegetative growth and flowers of the 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 variety, with color terminology in accordance with The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart (R.H.S.C.C.). The terminology used in the color descriptions herein refers to plate numbers in theaforementioned color chart.

Parentage: Seedling.

Seed parent.--`Mary Sumner`.

The following further horticultural observations were made of specimens grown outdoor in Smith County, Tex. in the month of November.


Blooming habit: Recurrent.

A. Bud:

(1) Size.--Small.

(2) Form.--Ovoid.

(3) Color.--As sepals divide, near 45A to 46A.

(4) Sepals.--Slightly longer than bud, simple.

(5) Peduncle.--Length -- average. Aspect -- straight. Strength -- erect. Color -- medium green with purple cast.

B. Bloom:

Color is substantially pure and constant on both top and undersurface of petals. Coloring tendsto lighten toward orange red as flowers age with the red coloring becoming less intense. Petals are near 34C toward point of petal attachment.

C. Petals:

(1) Texture.--Average.

A. Stamens, filaments and anthers:

Arrangement and Color.--Regularly arranged around styles. Color -- orange.

B. Pollen:


C. Styles: Even, medium length, bunched.

D. Stigmas: Cream colored.

E. Hips: Globular, medium size, orange red at maturity, seeds protrude.


A. Form: Compact.

B. Growth: Vigorous, uniform branching.

Height attained.--About 3 feet.

C. Foliage: Compound 3 and 5 leaflets.

(1) Size.--Medium.

(2) Quantity.--Abundant.

(3) Color:--New foliage: Upper side -- purplish green. Under side -- light green. Old foliage: Upper side -- medium green. Under side -- light green.

(4) Shape.--Oval, pointed.

(5) Texture.--Upper side is semi-glossy; under side is matte.
