Abstract

A new and distinct variety of Landscape Shrub Rose plant, herein referred to by its cultivar name, ‘MEIRIFTDAY’, is provided which forms very abundantly on a nearly continuous basis attractive, flat cup-shaped, dark pink colored blossoms. Attractive, glossy, dense foliage is formed, which contrasts beautifully with the blossoms. The disease tolerance is good, particularly against Black Spot. The new variety is well suited for proving attractive ornamentation in the landscape and is very floriferous.

Description

Botanical/commercial classification:
Latin name—Rosa hybrida.
Common name—Landscape Shrub Rose Plant.
Varietal denomination—‘MEIRIFTDAY’.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The new variety of Rosa hybrida Landscape Shrub 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 ‘KORIMRO’ variety (non-patented in the United States). The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was an unnamed seedling variety (non-patented in the United States).
The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows:
‘KORIMRO’ x ‘UNNAMED SEEDLING’
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 Landscape Shrub Rose plant of the present invention possesses the following combination of characteristics:
    • (a) very abundantly and nearly continuously forms attractive, flat cup-shaped, dark pink colored blossoms,
    • (b) forms attractive, dense, glossy foliage,
    • (c) exhibits good tolerance to diseases, particularly against Black Spot,
    • (d) is very floriferous, and
    • (e) is well suited for providing attractive ornamentation.
The new variety well meets the needs of the horticultural industry. It can be grown to advantage as ornamentation in parks, gardens, public areas, and in residential settings. Accordingly, the plant is particularly well suited for growing in the landscape.
The new variety of the present invention can readily be distinguished from its ancestors. More specifically, the ‘KORIMRO’ variety (i.e., the seed parent) exhibits light pink colored blossoms, whereas the new variety exhibits dark pink colored blossoms. In addition, the male parent, the ‘UNNAMED SEEDLING’ variety, (i.e., the pollen parent) exhibits yellow colored flowers, whereas the new variety exhibits dark pink colored flowers. Moreover, the new variety can be readily distinguished from other similar non-parental varieties. For example, the ‘MEIJOCOS’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 18,874) provides a lower petal count compared to the new variety.
The new variety has been found to undergo asexual propagation in France by a number of routes, including budding, grafting, and the use of cuttings. Asexual propagation by the above-mentioned techniques in France has shown that the characteristics of the new variety are stable and are strictly transmissible by such asexual propagation from one generation to another. Accordingly, the new variety undergoes asexual propagation in a true-to-type manner.
The new variety has been named ‘MEIRIFTDAY’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photographs show as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same, in a color illustration of this character, typical specimens of the plant parts of the new variety. The rose plants of the new variety were approximately two years of age and were observed during November while budded on their own roots and growing outdoors at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
FIG. 1—illustrates a specimen of a plant while growing in a pot, which shows the floriferous characteristics of the variety.
FIG. 2—illustrates a specimen of a plant while growing in a pot, which shows the detail of the flower and foliage.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The chart used in the identification of the colors is that of The Royal Horticultural Society (R.H.S. Colour Chart), London, England. The terminology which precedes reference to the chart has been added to indicate the corresponding color in more common terms. The description is based on the observation of two-year-old specimens of the new variety during November while budded on their own roots and growing outdoors at Le Cannet des Maures, Var, France.
