Origin & Breeding History: 'Imtradared' originated from a controlled cross made in January 2001 in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands between the female parent R3627-1 and the male parent S1973-1. The new Impatiens variety was developed by the breeder M. Sanders, an employee of Syngenta Seeds B.V. in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands. 'Imtradared' was selected as a single plant in September 2002 based on plant growth habit, flower size, flower shape and flower colour. Asexual reproduction by cuttings of 'Imtradared' was first conducted in September 2002 in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Imtradared' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20052018, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. 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.
