Origin & Breeding History: 'Bant Pin09' originated from a hybrid cross between the female parent proprietary line '5-1' and the male parent proprietary line '44-1' conducted in July 2004. The new Lantana was developed by the breeder Shifeng Pan, in Gilroy, California, United States, as part of a planned breeding program. The resultant seed from the cross was sown in a greenhouse in November 2004. In May 2005, a single plant from the progeny was selected by the breeder based on flower colour and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Bant Pin09' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2009 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 7, 2009. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 10, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
