Origin & Breeding History: 'Don Basco' was developed by breeder, Leonardu Johannes Maria van der Knaap, using a controlled cross between the female parent designated '120061123-001' and the male parent designated '20011350-001'. The cross took place in September 2007 in Naaldwijk, Netherlands. 'Don Basco' was selected in July 2008 based on its upright growth habit, good branching, flower colour, multiple petal number, leaf colour and size, and excellent post-production longevity.

The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2011. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
