Origin & Breeding History: 'BBSAL09001' originated from a controlled cross conducted by the breeder, Mr. Brent D. Barnes, on October 13, 2014, in Bonsall, California, USA. The cross was conducted between the female parent, an unknown seedling designated '14SJ001-01' and the male parent, an unknown seedling designated '13SALB050-01'. The new variety 'BBSAL09001' was selected from the cross on December 29, 2014 based on its plant vigour, growth habit, flowering time, frequency of flowering, flower colour, flower colour pattern and garden performance. Asexual reproduction of 'BBSAL09001' was first conducted by vegetative tip cuttings on January 14, 2015 in Bonsall, California, USA.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'BBSAL09001' was conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2018 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 12, 2018. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or parts of plants, of each variety on June 10, 2018. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
