Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisimp Red' originated from a hybridization made in 2002, in Hillscheid, Germany between the female parent seedling 'K03-1384-1' and the male parent seedling 'K02-0169-3'. The first selection occured in Moncarapacho, Portugal in the spring of 2003. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany for further examination and trial cultivation in the spring to summer of 2004. 'Fisimp Red' was selected based on flower colour, flower size, flower shape, growth characteristics and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisimp Red' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number IM 1051, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
