The initial selection was made in the summer of 2004 based on the selection criteria of growth habit, flower colour and powdery mildew resistance. In 2005-2006, the seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials and outdoor performance trials in Stuttgart, Germany.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted in a poly house in the spring of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 15 plants of each variety individually grown in 12 cm plastic pots. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart.
