Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Syncin Pueblo' originated from a naturally occurring whole plant mutation of the parent variety 'Yopueblo'. The variety was discovered and selected by the breeder in November 2008 in Alva, Florida, USA. Selection was based on flower colour, plant habit and flowering response time.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Syncin Pueblo' were conducted in a greenhouse trial during the Fall of 2011 in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario. On August 16, 2011, fifty unrooted cuttings were directly stuck into 15 cm pots, with 5 cuttings per pot. The trial included a total of 10 pots of each variety spaced 30 cm apart. Plants were pinched once prior to short day treatment. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on November 8, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
