Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'L10018' originated from the self pollination of the unnamed proprietary selection 'A.09.09', in Marslev, Denmark in 2010. The resulting seedlings were selected in 2011 based on their compact upright growth habit and distinctive flowers.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'L10018' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2012/0606, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge, United Kingdom in 2013 and 2014. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
