Origin & Breeding History: 'Bodlizvio' was developed from an impatiens breeding program conducted at John Bodger & Sons Co., Lompoc, California, USA. The original cross took place in the fall of 1999 between 'Firefly Lavender' and 'Tempo White'. The F1 population was sown in February 2000 where a single plant was selected and self pollinated. The F2 seed were sown in July 2000 where a single plant selection was made and was vegetatively propagated. Selection criteria included small flowers, compact and well branched growth habit, and attractive flower colour.
Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted in the summer of 2006, in Oxford Station, Ontario. Trials consisted of 15 plants of each variety individually grown in 10cm pots in a poly house. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety.
