Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisnics Magpink', was derived from a hybridization made during 2000 in Hillscheid, Germany between the female parent K98-4069-25 and the male parent variety 'Fisimp 207'. One seedling was selected in April 2001 in Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain from the seed shipped there, based on flower colour, and subsequently taken back to Hillscheid, Germany for further selection in the spring 2002. In the summer of 2002 a plant was discovered having white margins and white stripes on the petals.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 20041162, application number IM 906, grant number 14542, purchased from the CPVO, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2004.
