Origin & Breeding History: 'Dekgaliaro Green' originated from crossing the proprietary seedling '02.6478.02' as the female parent with the proprietary seedling number '02.6342.04' as the male parent which was conducted in February, 2004 in Hensbroek, The Netherlands. It was selected from the resultant progeny in November, 2004 based on its unique decorative flower type, flower colour and size, and strong plant vigour. Asexual reproduction of the variety by cuttings was first conducted in Hensbroek in December, 2004.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Dekgaliaro Green' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2007/1178, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) in Cambridge, United Kingdom, in 2008. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart, 5th edition.
