In July 1998, 'Evipo014' was selected in the greenhouse at Guernsey, Channel Islands, United Kingdom. Selection criteria included non-clinging habit, nodding campanulate white flowers, summer flowering, suitability to garden situations and cold tolerance to United States Department of Agriculture Hardiness zone 3.

Tests & Trials: 'Evipo014' was tested at St. Thomas, Ontario. Ten bare root liners of both the candidate and reference variety were planted in the field on September 18, 2004. Plants were spaced .6 metres apart and trained to grow along a trellis. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plant parts on June 15, 2006. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
