The female parent was a proprietary seedling designated as 20011048-01 and the male parent was a proprietary seedling designated as 200550805-01. The new variety was selected in May 2006 based on flower quantity, flower colour, leaf colour, leaf glossiness, plant habit and good branching characteristics. The new variety was first propagated by in-vitro methods in June 2006 in Maasdijk, The Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sparanke' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 2008/1387, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by Naktuinbouw in Roelofarendsveen, The Netherlands in 2009.
