Origin & Breeding History: 'Poulcot007' originated from the controlled crossing in the summer of 1995 of two unnamed seedlings in Fredensborg, Denmark. One seedling resulting from this cross was selected in the spring of 1996 based on compact low growing habit, flower colour, development of colourful rose hips, suitability for garden and landscape use and improved resistance to diseases.

Tests & Trials: Field trials were conducted during the summer of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 8 plants of each variety planted in May 2007 in rows with plants spaced 2 feet apart and rows spaced 3 feet apart. All colour measurements were made using the Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2001.
