Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Sunseneribuba' originated from a controlled pollination between two proprietary Senecio varieties, made at Shiga, Japan in January 1995. Seeds from the cross were germinated and grown to maturity. In February 2004, one plant was selected by the breeder based on its growth habit and flower colour. The selected plant was propagated by cuttings and grown in pot trials from July 2005, where it was determined that it was distinct from other varieties and uniform and stable.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sunseneribuba' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20080685, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by The Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
