Origin & Breeding History: 'Stabur Yel' was developed by the breeder, Jason Jandrew, an employee of Goldsmith Seeds, Inc., in Gilroy, California, U.S.A. as part of a planned breeding program. It originated from a cross made in May 2005 between the female parent designated '340-1', a proprietary seedling with lemon yellow flowers, and the male parent designated '320-1', another proprietary seedling with yellow flowers. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in September 2005. 'Stabur Yel' was selected in December 2005 based on its large flower size, flower colour and full, compact plant growth habit.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Stabur Yel' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2008 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 15 plants per variety. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 13, 2008. Measured characteristics were based on measurements taken from 10 plants or parts of plants on July 2, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
