Hybridizer's comment: Son of 'Going Home' (variety I particularly like for its colors and its very good resistance to leaf spot), inherited color, I liked 'French Caresse' because it is almost pink amoena with correct vigor and very floriferous for this type of colors.

Commentaire de l'hybrideur: Fils de 'Going home' (variété que j'aime particulièrement pour son coloris et sa trés bonne résistance à l'hétérosporiose), dont il a hérité la couleur, 'French Caresse' m'a plu car il est presque amoena rose avec une vigueur et floribondité trés correcte pour ce type de coloris."
