Origin & Breeding History: 'Zlemartincipar' originated from a cross made in the spring of 2000 between the female parent, proprietary seedling designated 1997-1 and the male parent, 'Robin Hood' in St. Paul, Minnesota, USA. In late winter 2001, a single plant was selected from the progeny based on plant habit, flower size and colour, continuous flowering and disease resistance.

Tests & Trials: Field trials were conducted during the summer of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 8 plants of each variety planted in May 2008 in rows with plants spaced 2 feet apart and rows spaced 3 feet apart. All colour measurements were made using the Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2001.
