Origin & Breeding History: 'Chewmaytime' was developed by the breeder, Christopher Hugh Warner, in Greenfields, Brockton, Newport, Shropshire, United Kingdom. It originated from a cross made in 1991 between an unnamed Rose seedling as the female parent and Rose variety 'Laura Ford' as the male parent. 'Chewmaytime' was selected from the progeny in 1992 based on its flower colour, flower type, flower size and disease resistance. Asexual reproduction by softwood cuttings was first conducted in July 1993 in Brockton, United Kingdom.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Chewmaytime' were conducted in the field during the summer of 2007 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were eight (8) plants per variety. Rooted plants were transplanted to the field in May 2007. The plants were spaced 0.6 meters apart in rows which were 0.9 meters apart. All observations and measurements were taken on September 23, 2007. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
