Origin & Breeding History: 'Poulcas033' originated from a controlled cross conducted during the summer of 2003 at the breeding facilities of Poulsen Roser A/S in Fredensborg, Denmark, as part of a breeding program to hybridize rose varieties for commercial glasshouse and nursery culture. The cross involved two unnamed seedlings. The resultant seeds were planted in December 2001 and germinated during the winter and early spring. In the spring of 2002, one seedling was selected for its compact and vigorous growth when propagated on its own root, profusion of light yellow flowers, suitability to open air nursery container culture, resistance to typical rose diseases, and fragrance.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Poulcas033' was conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2014 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial consisted of a total of 8 plants of the candidate variety and 6 plants of the reference variety. All plants were grown from bare-rooted plants and transplanted into 13 litre containers on April 4, 2014. Unless otherwise indicated, observations and measurements were taken from 8 plants of the candidate variety and 6 plants of the reference variety, or 10 parts of plants of each variety on June 17, 2014. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
