Origin & Breeding History: 'Innbolwhi' originated from a cross made in January 2005 in Gensingen, Germany. The female and male parents were both proprietary seedlings. The new variety was selected from the resultant seedlings in September 2005, for criteria based on flower type, flower colour and compact growth habit. Asexual reproduction of the new variety by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in 2005 in Gensingen, Germany.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Innbolwhi' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2007/2744. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2008. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
