In May 2003, several seedlings were selected, with the final selection being made in November 2003 based on flower colour, plant habit, disease resistance and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2003/2010, application number ROS 2382, grant number 15104, purchased from the CPVO, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Rethmar, Germany, in 2004. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
