Origin & Breeding History: 'Balandroglim' arose as the result of crossing the proprietary Lantana breeding selection designated 484-1 as the female parent with 'Robpatdes' as the male parent in August 2002, at Arroyo Grande, California, USA. The initial selection was made on May 23, 2003 followed by asexual propagation through the use of vegetative cuttings since that time. Selection criteria included the semi-upright growth habit characteristic of the series.

Tests & Trials: The test and trial for 'Balandroglim' was conducted in a poly-house during the summer of 2007 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 15 plants of each variety. Rooted cuttings were transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 10, 2007. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 11 & 16, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
