Origin & Breeding History: 'Silt Salm09' originated from the self-pollination of the variety 'ID03-455-7' conducted by the breeder Jolanda Krassenburg, an employee of Goldsmith Seeds Europe, Andijk, The Netherlands, as part of a planned breeding program in July 2005. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in October 2005. In November 2005, a single plant was selected by the breeder based on flower colour.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Silt Salm09' 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 25, 2008. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 23, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
