Abstract

A new and distinct variety of climbing rose plant is provided which forms in abundance on a nearly continuous basis attractive single blossoms that are salmon-pink with a yellow eye. The vegetation is vigorous and the growth habit is upright and climbing. Attractive ornamental satiny green foliage is formed. Excellent disease resistance to blackspot is displayed. The hardiness of the new variety is excellent for a climber. The new variety is particularly well suited for growing as distinctive ornamentation in the landscape.

Description

Botanical/commercial classification: Rosa hybrida/Climbing Rose Plant.
Varietal denomination: cv. RADBRITE.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The new variety of Rosa hybrida climbing rose plant of the present invention was created at Greenfield, Wis., U.S.A. 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 ‘RADtee’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) of the new variety was the ‘AUScot’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,215). A ‘AUScot’ variety is marketed under the ABRAHAM DARBY trademark. The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows:
‘RADtee’בAUScot’.
The seeds resulting from the above pollination were sown and small plants were obtained which were physically and biologically different from each other. Selective study resulted in the identification of a single plant of the new variety.
It was found that the new variety of climbing rose plant of the present invention possesses the following combination of characteristics:
    • (a) abundantly forms attractive single blossoms that are salmon-pink with a yellow eye,
    • (b) exhibits an upright and climbing growth habit;
    • (c) forms vigorous vegetation,
    • (d) forms attractive ornamental green foliage with a satiny finish,
    • (e) exhibits excellent resistance to blackspot, and
    • (f) exhibits excellent resistance to cold.
The new variety displays good repeat blooming, and the winter hardiness is believed to be one of the best observed for a climbing rose plant. The growth is very vigorous and the canes commonly are of medium to heavy caliper for the class.
The new variety well meets the needs of the horticultural industry. It can be grown to advantage as attractive climber in parks, gardens, public areas, and in residential settings. It alternatively can be trimmed and grown as a compact rose bush in the absence of support. The new variety is particularly well suited for providing attractive ornamentation in the landscape. The salmon-pink blossoms contrast nicely with the satiny green foliage.
The new variety of the present invention can be readily distinguished from its ancestors. More specifically, the ‘RADtee’ variety is a shrub rose that forms non-fragrant blossoms having approximately 12 petals which are white with a pink edge, and the ‘AUScot’ variety forms very large very double blossoms that display a blend of pastel pink, yellow, white and orange coloration.
The new variety of the present invention also can be readily distinguished from other climbing rose plants, such as the ‘Radsunsar’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,611) and the ‘Wekroalt’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,518), following an inspection of the blossom coloration. More specifically, the ‘Radsunsar’ variety forms blossoms that are entirely yellow, and the blossoms of the ‘Wekroalt’ variety are velvety red striped with white.
The characteristics of the new variety have been found at Waso, Calif. U.S.A., to be homogeneous and stable and are strictly transmissible by asexual propagation such as budding, grafting, and the rooting of cuttings from one generation to another. The new variety reproduces true to type by such asexual propagation.
The new variety has been named ‘RADBRITE’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photograph shows, as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same in a color illustration of this character, a typical flowering plant of the new variety while growing with support. The illustrated rose plant of the new variety was approximately three years of age and was observed during the summer while growing outdoors on its own roots at Greenfield, Wis. U.S.A.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION
The chart used in the identification of colors is that of The Royal Horticultural Society (R.H.S. Colour Chart), London, England. The description is based on the observation of three year-old specimens of the new variety during June while growing outdoors on their own roots near West Grove, Pa., U.S.A.
