Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisnics Mang' was derived from a hybridization made in 2001, by the breeder Birgit Hofmann in Hillscheid, Germany, between the female parent, seedling K98-4178-19 and the male parent, 'Cabuya'. The first selection occurred in Moncarapacho, Portugal, in 2002. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany, for further evaluation and trial cultivation in 2003. The main selection criteria were flower colour, flower shape, time of beginning of flowering, plant size and branching habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisnics Mang' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number IM 967, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2005. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
