The density of ray florets of the flower head of 'CIDZ0013' is sparse whereas for 'Yospirit Lake' it is moderately dense. The predominant type of ray floret for 'CIDZ0013' is spatulate while it is ligulate for 'Yospirit Lake'. The attitude of the basal part of the ray floret for 'CIDZ0013' is upright to moderately ascending while for 'Yospirit Lake', the attitude is horizontal. 'CIDZ0013' has a longer corolla tube of the ray floret and a larger disc diameter than 'Yospirit Lake'. The colour of the outer side of the ray floret of 'CIDZ0013' is light blue violet whereas for 'Yospirit Lake', it is white with streaks of purple located predominantly along the central bar.

Origin & Breeding History: 'CIDZ0013' originated from a controlled cross-pollination conducted in June 2007, in Salinas, California, USA, as part of a controlled breeding program of Syngenta Flowers, Inc. The cross involved a proprietary line designated 'YB-A3545' as the female parent, and a proprietary line designated 'YB-A6845' as the male parent. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in October 2007. 'CIDZ0013' was selected as a single plant from the progeny in March 2008 by the breeder, Wendy R. Bergman, in Alva, Florida, USA, based on its flower colour, plant growth habit, and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The trial for 'CIDZ0013' was conducted in the fall of 2012 at Meyers Fruit Farm in Niagara on the Lake, Ontario. Flowering trials were conducted under greenhouse conditions similar to those used in commercial Chrysanthemum production. 50 unrooted cuttings were stuck into 15 cm pots on August 18, 2012. There were 5 cuttings per pot and the pots were spaced 30 cm apart. The plants were pinched once prior to short day treatment. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or parts of plants, of the candidate and reference varieties on November 15, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
