Origin & Breeding History: 'Dafemogtyve' originated from a hybridization between a proprietary seedling designated '4416G' and the variety 'Hawai'. The hybridization was conducted as part of a breeding program, in June of 2006, in the research greenhouse of the breeder, Rune Harboe Nielsen, located in Stige, Denmark. The objectives of the breeding program were to develop new Dahlia varieties with a uniform and compact plant form and colourful, attractive flowers. 'Dafemogtyve' was selected in June of 2010 for its compact plant growth habit and red coloured flowers.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Dafemogtyve' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2012/1128, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trial was conducted in 2013 by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany, in Cambridge, United Kingdom. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
