Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisupnic Purdeep' was derived from a hybridization made in 2002, by the breeder Birgit Hofmann in Hillscheid, Germany, between the female parent, seedling K02-975-1 and the male parent, seedling K02-1094-1. The first selection occurred in Moncarapacho, Portugal, in the spring of 2003. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany, for further evaluation and trial cultivation in the spring of 2004. The main selection criteria were flower colour, growth characteristics and plant habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisupnic Purdeep' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number IM 988, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2006. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
