The new variety of Rosa hybrida Hybrid Tea rose 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 product of the cross of the `STEBIGPU` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 6,262) and `MEIMAGARMIC` variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 5,067). The male parent (i.e, the pollen parent) was the `ADHARMAN` variety (non-patented in the United States).
The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows: (`STEBIGPU` x `MEIMAGARMIC`) x `ADHARMAN`
