Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Calpribul' originated from a cross pollination conducted in Enkhuizen, Netherlands in May 2004. The female parent was a proprietary seedling with light pink flowers, designated E0139-1 and the male parent was a proprietary seedling with white flowers, designated C4458-1. The resultant seed was collected and sown in a greenhouse in Enkhuizen in February 2005. A single plant was selected from the progeny in May 2005, based on criteria for semi-trailing growth habit, flower colour, flower size, dark foliage colour, very early flowering and continuous free-flowering.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Calpriwi' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2011 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 12, 2011. 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 June 29, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
