- History & LoreHistory:This superior new hybrid is of course a member of the Rosaceae family. The signature genus Rosa was classified by Linnaeus in the 18th century and today contains over one hundred species, all originating in the Northern Hemisphere. From the wild species there have evolved thousands of hybrids and forms with many branches in the ancestral tree. Today's repeat blooming roses derive their remondant characteristics from the China tea roses and hybrid perpetuals. This contemporary hybrid was bred in the United States by William J. Radler, and introduced by Conard-Pyle Co.Lore:Roses are among the most ancient ornamentals in cultivation. Their redolent perfume of the species brought them into the palaces of Egypt and Rome where they reached legendary proportions in western civilization.
