Origin & Breeding History: 'Bonbra7115' originated from a controlled pollination of the proprietary Brachyscome selection '00-127-1' with the proprietary Brachyscome selection '00-147-6' in an isolated area in 2004. Seeds from the pollination were germinated and grown to maturity. One plant was selected by the breeder on April 5, 2005, in a controlled environment in Yellow Rock, Australia. The selected plant was propagated by cuttings and grown in pots. A trial was carried out from July 2005 to December 2006 to examine the botanical characteristics of that plant. The new variety was subsequently named 'Bonbra7115'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Bonbra7115' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2011 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total or 15 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11 cm pots on April 27, 2011. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 3, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
