Origin & Breeding History: 'IMGZ0006' originated from a controlled cross conducted in Enkhuizen, Netherlands, in June 2005, between the female parent variety 'Paradise Amoya' and the male parent proprietary line identified as 'KO5-5618-1'. The new variety was bred and developed by the breeder, Renate Sobek, in Enkhuizen, as part of a controlled breeding program. The resultant seed from the cross was collected and sown in a greenhouse in November, 2005. In April, 2006, a single plant was selected based on flower colour, plant habit, and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'IMGZ0006' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2013 in St. Thomas, Ontario. Trials included 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 4, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 11, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
