Origin & Breeding History: 'Sanifpirave' originated from a cross made in 2003 at Nishinomiya, Hyogo, Japan. The female parent was the proprietary line ajf-52 and the male parent was the proprietary line ard-2. Seedlings obtained from the cross were grown in pots in the glasshouse and evaluated. In 2004 some seedlings were selected based on flower colour, growth habit and heat tolerance. The selected plants were propagated by cuttings and grown in a pot trial. 'Sanifpirave' was selected in 2005 from this trial.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Sanifpirave' were conducted during the summer of 2009 in a polyhouse at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. The plants were grown from rooted cuttings which were transplanted to 15 cm pots on May 1, 2009. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants on June 30, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
