The new variety was selected in April 2004, based on criteria for multiple petals, salmon orange flower colour, growth habit and post-production longevity.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Don Domingo' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2004/1678, grant of rights number 16905, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2005. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
