Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisrolamon' originated from a hybridization between the female parent 'Fishelen' and the male parent 'Fisorange' conducted in 2002 in Hillscheid, Germany. The seeds of the resultant offspring was then taken to Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain where 'Fisrolamon' was selected as a single seedling in 2003. Cuttings from 'Fisrolamon' were taken back to Hillscheid for further examination and for the trial cultivation which began in the spring of 2004. 'Fisrolamon' was selected based on flower colour, shape of inflorescence in combination with plant growth habit and plant vigor.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisrolamon' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2151, 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.
