The Parent was selected from the commercial varieties, the first parent (P1) belonging to the floribunda roses group and the second parent (P2) belonging to the hybrid tea roses group. Hybridization was applied between the two parents to produce the hybrid (F1). The best hybrid were selected and sown to produce mothers of plants. After one year, cuttings were taken from the hybrid and parents and planted to produce mother plants. After six month from planting, hybrid and its parents were evaluated based on plant height, number of branches, number of buds, number of flowers, carrying capacity of flowers, number of petals , flower diameter and length of flower stalk. The statistical analysis showed significant difference between the hybrid and parents in the characters under study. The hybrid recorded the highest number of branches (31.8), number of buds (61.6), number of leaves (175.4), number of flowers (71.8 flower/ plant) and flowers clusters.
