Tests & Trials: The test and trial for '95-105-6' was conducted during the fall of 2006 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 15 plants of each variety. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 20 cm pots. Candidates were planted on July 13, 2006, while the reference was planted on June 30, 2006. The trial was grown outdoors under natural light conditions. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on September 27, 2006. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
