Origin & Breeding History: 'Poultc010' originated from a cross between two unnamed seedlings, made in the summer of 1997 at Fredensborg, Denmark. Seeds from the cross were planted in December 1997 and germinated during the winter and early spring. 'Poultc010' was selected in the spring of 1998. Selection criteria included very compact and uniform plants, uniform and vigourous growth when propagated on own root, flowering profusion, suitability to container culture and disease resistance.

Tests & Trials: The test and trial for 'Poultc010' was conducted in the field during the summer of 2007 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 6 plants of each variety. Bare root plants were planted in 3 gallon containers and transplanted into the field in the June of 2007. Plants were grown in rows with plants spaced 60 cm apart and rows spaced 90 cm apart. Observations and measurements were taken on August 16, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
