Origin & Breeding History: 'SAKIMP022' originated from a hybridization conducted in Misato, Japan, in June 2004, between the female parent 'NC-35' and the male parent 'NC-229A', both unpatented proprietary breeding lines. The resultant seed from the cross was sown and the first generation plants were evaluated in Misato, Japan, in an open field trial. At completion of the trial, a single plant was selected based on flower colour, strength of root system and growth habit. The selected plant was vegetatively propagated and further evaluated in an open field in Misato, Japan from May to August 2006. It was subsequently named 'SAKIMP022'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'SAKIMP022' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2013 in St. Thomas, Ontario. Trials included 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 23, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 12, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
