Origin & Breeding History: 'Evipo016' originated from a controlled crossing between the seed parent 'Bees Jubilee' and the pollen parent an unnamed seedling in Guernsey, England during the spring of 1999. The resulting seeds were germinated in January of 2000 and the seedlings were evaluated under controlled conditions during the following summer. After the initial evaluation of the seedlings, the new variety was assigned a breeding code and it was reproduced asexually by vegetative cuttings. 'Evipo016' was developed with the objective of creating a new and distinct variety with red flowers, compact vigorous growth habit, free flowering on new growth and good branching.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Evipo016' were field planted and conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2010 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 8 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from barerooted plants grown in 3.8 litre containers and transplanted into the field on August 5, 2009. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plant parts of the candidate variety 'Evipo016' on June 7, 2010 and the reference variety 'Rosemoor' on June 21, 2010. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
