Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'VEAZ0005' originated from a cross pollination conducted in Gilroy, California, USA in July 2007. The female parent was a proprietary line, designated 2043-2, characterized by its lavender-pink flower colour and the male parent was the variety 'Lan Upbriro'. The resultant seed was collected and sown in a greenhouse in Gilroy in January 2008. In April 2008, a single plant was selected based on criteria for flower colour, plant habit and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'VEAZ0005' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2012 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 2, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 7, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
