Origin & Breeding History: 'KRSSUWH01' was bred and developed as part of a planned breeding program by the breeder, Lubbertus H. Koppe, in Ermelo, Netherlands. It originated from a hybrid cross conducted in January 2007 between the female parent, an unnamed Begoina x tuberhybrida variety, and the male parent, an unnamed Begonia socotrana variety. 'KRSSUWH01' was selected from the resultant progeny in September 2007 based on its flower size, flower type and flower colour.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KRSSUWH01' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2010/2058, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2011. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
