Origin & Breeding History: 'Evera126' originated from a cross conducted in May 2001 in Fåborg, Denmark between two unnamed Rosa hybrid seedlings. The new variety was selected as a single plant by the breeder Rosa Eskelund Hansen in August 2003. Selection of 'Evera126' was based on flower colour, plant growth habit and disease resistance. Asexual reproduction of the new rose by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in August 2003.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Evera126' were conducted in a greenhouse during the summer of 2008 in Beamsville, Ontario. Trials included 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. Plants were grown from cuttings from Denmark directly stuck into 10 cm pots with 3 cuttings per pot in week 28 and misted for two weeks. The young plants were cut in week 31 and week 34. Plants were spaced in week 35. All plants were grown under greenhouse conditions used for rose production and were treated with growth regulators. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on September 23, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
