Origin & Breeding History: 'Balcebredep' originated from a cross between the female parent, a proprietary breeding selection designated 7824-3, and the male parent, a proprietary breeding selection designated 7830-2. The cross was conducted in November 2003 in Arroyo Grande, California, USA as part of a controlled breeding program. The initial selection was made on April 20, 2004 and was based on flower colour and foliage variegation. Asexual propagation since that time has been through the use of vegetative cuttings.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Balcebredep' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. Trials included 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 29, 2008. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 14, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
