Origin & Breeding History: 'Camp Inbule' was developed as part of a planned pedigree breeding program by the breeder, Pim Kaagman, of Goldsmith Seeds Europe B.V., in Andijk, The Netherlands. It originated from a cross between the female parent designated 'CP-13-2' and the male parent designated 'CW-122-1' made in February 2001. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in August 2001and a single plant, 'Camp Whit', was selected in January 2002 based on its' early flowering time, quantity of flowers and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Camp Inbule' were conducted in a poly-house during the summer of 2007 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of fifteen (15) plants per variety. All plants with the exception of 'Stella Blue' and 'Blue Uniform' were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on April 30, 2007. The plants of 'Stella Blue' and 'Blue Uniform' were grown from seed. Observations and measurements were taken from ten (10) plants or parts of plants from July 26 to August 1, 2007. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
