Origin & Breeding History: 'Sunsenepiba' originated from a whole plant mutation of proprietary Senecio x hybrida selection 'RB325' and was discovered in February 2006 at the Omi R&D Center of Suntory Flowers Ltd. located in Shiga, Japan. The discovered plant was propagated by cutting and grown in pots in a glasshouse. A trial was carried out from July 2007 to February 2008 during which the botanical characteristics were examined. It was concluded that 'Sunsenepiba' was distinguishable from any other Senecio varieties, and uniform and stable in its characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sunsenepiba' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2009/1341, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
