The female parent was variety 'Simon Yellow' and characterized by its medium yellow flowers, dark green foliage and semi-upright plant growth habit. 'Balandrise' was selected on July 29, 2005 based on its vigour, flower size, leaf size, branching habit and suitablity for landscape planting.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Balandrise' were conducted during the spring of 2008 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants per variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 13, 2008. Measured characteristics were based on measurements taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on July 4, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
