Origin & Breeding History: 'Kakegawa S85' originated from a cross conducted during 2001, in Kakegawa, Japan. The cross was between the female proprietary breeding line K8-1463 and the male proprietary breeding line 0B-11A-1. The selection of 'Kakegawa S85' occurred in 2002, based on its flower colour and trailing growth habit. The variety has been maintained since 2002 through the use of vegetative shoot-tip cuttings.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Kakegawa S85' were conducted during the summer of 2007, in a polyhouse, in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11 cm pots on July 10, 2007. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety (except plant width where 5 plants were measured) on August 21, 2007. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
