Origin & Breeding History: 'Cal Mang' originated from a cross made in September 2004 by the breeder Robert Pierce, in Gilroy, California as part of a planned breeding program. The cross was conducted between the female parent 'Cal Goldey' and the male parent '1295', a proprietary seedling. The resultant seed from this cross was sown in a greenhouse in April 2005. In July 2005, a single plant from the progeny was selected by the breeder based on flower colour and plant growth habit.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Cal Mang' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 30 cm hanging baskets on May 23, 2008. Each basket contained 4 cuttings with a total of 5 baskets per variety. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 22, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
