Origin & Breeding History: 'Daniogtyve' originated from a naturally occurring mutation of the variety 'Danitten'. The mutation was observed in August of 2012 as part of a breeding program. The objectives of the breeding program were to develop new Dahlia varieties with a uniform and compact plant form and colourful, attractive flowers. 'Daniogtyve' was selected in May of 2013 for its compact plant growth habit and yellow coloured flowers.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Daniogtyve' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2013/1701, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trial was conducted in 2014 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.
