This cross was from the controlled pollination of the rose variety 'Immensee' with an unknown pollen parent, conducted in May 1998. Selection of 'Noa168098F' was based on its compact growth habit, long flowering period, resistance to mildew and black spot and the resistance of the flowers to heat stress.

Tests & Trials: The test and trial for 'Noa168098F' was conducted during the summer of 2007, at Pan American Nursery Products Inc. in Surrey, B.C. The trial included 12 plants of 'Noa168098F' and 6 plants of 'Noatraum', the reference variety. The roses were planted 0.6 metres apart centre to centre in 22 litre pots arranged outdoors in a 3 x 6 metre plot. Colours were determined using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
