Origin & Breeding History: 'Poulpah025' originated from a controlled cross made in 2001 in Fredensborg, Denmark. The female parent was an unnamed seedling and the male parent was the variety 'Kormutric'. Seeds were planted in December 2001 and germinated during the winter and early spring of 2002. 'Poulpah025' was selected in spring 2002 from these resulting seedlings. The objective of the breeding program was to create a new distinct variety with a compact vigourous growth habit that can be propagated on its own roots, near white flower colour, suitability to glasshouse culture year round, resistance to typical rose diseases and very long post harvest flowering characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Poulpah025' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2004/2561. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2005. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
