The new variety of Rosa hybrida plant was created by artificial pollination wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the `TAN99176` variety (non-patented). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was the `ADAHUIN` variety (non-patented).
