Origin & Breeding History: 'Inncleosr' is the product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder, Silvia Hofmann, an employee of InnovaPlant GmbH. & Co. KG., Gensingen, Germany. 'Inncleosr' originated from a cross conducted in the summer of 2002 in Gensingen, Germany, between the female parent, 'Linda Armstrong', and the male parent an unnamed pink cleome seedling. This variety was selected in the spring of 2003 for criteria based on flower form and colour, continuous flowering from spring to fall, and good weather tolerance (rain and wind). Asexual reproduction by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in 2003 in Gensingen, Germany.

Tests & Trials: PBR trials were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2007 in St. Thomas, Ontario. Trials included 15 plants of the candidate and reference variety. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 8, 2007. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 27, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
