Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisnics Salice' originated from a hybridization made in 2002, in Hillscheid, Germany between the female parent 'K02-9114-1' and the male parent 'K01-8593-2'. The first selection occurred in Moncarpacho, 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 to summer of 2004. Selection of 'Fisnics Salice' was based on flower colour, flower size, flower shape, growth characteristics and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisnics Salice' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number IM 1050, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
