Origin & Breeding History: 'Patrice' orignated from a cross made in August 2005 in Hinnerup, Denmark. The cross was between the female parent cultivar 'Jaqueline' and the male parent proprietary seedling '9511-BA-0237'. 'Patrice' was the product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder Knud Jepsen. The new variety was selected by the breeder as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the cross in August 2006 in Hinnerup, Denmark. The variety was selected based on plant size, flower size, flower colour, petal count and production characteristics. Asexual reproduction, by terminal cuttings, of 'Patrice' was first conducted in August 2006 in Hinnerup, Denmark.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Patrice' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 20081130, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
