Origin & Breeding History: 'Poulpah053' originated from a controlled crossing of an unnamed female parent with an unnamed male parent, made in the summer of 2006 in Fredensborg, Denmark. The resulting seed was planted in December, 2006 and germinated during the winter and spring. One seedling was selected in the spring of 2007 based on compact, vigourous growth when propagated on its own root, flower colour, suitability for container culture, resistance to diseases and flower longevity.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Poulpah053' is based on the UPOV report on Technical Examination, application number 2010/0220, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
