The cross was conducted in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan, on June 12, 2008. The selection of 'USFUC0901' was based on heat tolerance, plant growth habit, and flower colour. 'USFUC0901' was first propagated by vegetative cuttings on September 15, 2009, in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan.

Tests & Trials: The trial of 'USFUC0901' was conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2013 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. It included 20 plants of the candidate variety and 9 plants of the refererence variety. The plants were grown from rooted cuttings transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 17, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of the candidate variety, and 9 plants or parts of plants of the reference variety on June 21, 2013. All colourdeterminations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
