Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisupnic Kirmag' originated from a hybridization made in the summer of 2003, in Hillscheid, Germany between the female parent seedling 'K03-3186-1' and the male parent seedling 'K03-2428-2'. The first selection occurred in Moncarapacho, Portugal in the spring of 2004. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany for further examination and trial cultivation in the spring through summer of 2005. 'Fisupnic Kirmag' was selected based on flower colour, flower size, flower shape, growth characteristics and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisupnic Kirmag' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number IM 1101, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2008. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
