Origin & Breeding History: 'SYEP231' originated from a cross conducted in October 2007 between the female parent Chamaesyce hypericifolia designated '07-001', a proprietary seedling with white flowers, and the male parent variety 'Inneuphdia'. The new variety was developed by the breeder Dr. Kerry Bunker, as part of a controlled breeding program conducted in Queensland, Australia. The resultant seed from the cross was sown in a greenhouse in January 2008. In September 2008, a single plant from the progeny was selected by the breeder based on flower colour and plant habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'SYEP231' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2011, in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 29, 2011. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 6, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
