Origin & Breeding History: 'CIFZ0022' was bred and developed as part of a controlled breeding program at Syngenta Flowers Inc., in Gilroy, California, USA. It originated from a cross conducted in December 2009 by the breeder, Mark A. Smith, in Amanecer, Columbia, USA, between the proprietary line designated 'G0519L1' as the female parent, and the proprietary line designated '06-M030' as the male parent. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in October 2010, in Gilroy, California, USA. 'CIFZ0022' was selected in February 2011 based on its flower colour and plant growth habit.
Tests & Trials: The trial of 'CIFZ0022' was conducted as an outdoor irrigated trial during the fall of 2013 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. It included a total of 20 plants of the candidate variety and 15 plants of the reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 20 cm chrysanthemum pans on June 25, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or parts of plants, of the candidate and reference varieties on September 26, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
