Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Don Ramon' was developed by the breeder, an employee of Knaap Licenties B.V., Naaldwijk, The Netherlands. A controlled cross was conducted on May 26, 2003, between the female parent designated as 2000033, and the male parent designated as 20000282-2. The new variety was selected in April 2004, based on criteria for multiple petals, purple flower colour, growth habit and post-production longevity.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Don Ramon' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2004/1671, grant of rights number 16933, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2005. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
