Origin & Breeding History: 'GAIZ0005' was developed as part of a controlled breeding program by the breeder Har Stemkens, an employee of Syngenta, in Enkhuizen, Netherlands. It originated from an open pollinated cross between 'D2674', the female parent variety, and an unknown male parent in August 2008 in Enkhuizen, Netherlands. In May 2009, a single plant from the resulting progeny was selected based on its plant growth habit, branching and large, bi-coloured flowers. Asexual reproduction by cuttings was first conducted in September 2009 in Enkhuizen, Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'GAIZ0005' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2014/0068, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany in Cambridge, United Kingdom in 2015.
