Origin & Breeding History: 'Evera168' originated from a cross made in March, 2004 in Fåborg, Denmark, between a proprietary seedling identified as 03-0176 as the female parent and an unnamed Rosa hybrida seedling as the male parent. The new variety was selected as a single plant by the breeder Rosa Eskelund Hansen in June 2004. Selection of 'Evera168' was based on flower form, flower colour and disease resistance. Asexual reproduction of the new rose by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in October 2005.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Evera168' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2006/1968. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
