Origin & Breeding History: 'Innbellro' originated from a cross made in Gensingen, Germany in 2003. The female parent was the variety 'Elserta' and the male parent was a Begonia pendula white seedling. The new variety was selected in 2004 based on criteria for flower colour, compact habit, good branching and abundant flowering. Asexual reproduction of the new variety by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in the summer of 2004 in Gensingen, Germany.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Innbellro' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 2006/2458, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by ILVO-Eenheid Plant, Teelt en omgeving, Merelbeke, Belgium, in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
