Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Anwedgim' originated from an open pollinated cross conducted by the breeder Elke Steffan in Dresden, Germany during the summer of 2009. Both the female and male parents used to conduct the cross were unknown proprietary seedlings. 'Anwedgim' was selected in the summer of 2010 based on flower colour and size, branching characteristics, leaf colour, and earliness of flowering. Asexual reproduction of 'Anwedgim' was first conducted by cuttings in the summer of 2010 in Dresden, Germany.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Anwedgim' was conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2015 at Bioflora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 15, 2015. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on June 17, 2015. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
