Origin & Breeding History: 'Bant Reda09' was developed by the breeder, Shifeng Pan, an employee of Goldsmith Seeds, Inc. in Gilroy, California, U.S.A. as part of a planned breeding program. It orginated from a cross conducted in July 2004 between the female parent designated '22-1', a proprietary line with fuchsia flowers, and the male parent designated 'I-2', a proprietary line with fuchsia red flowers. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in November 2004 and in May 2005, 'Bant Reda09' was selected based on its flower colour and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Bant Reda09' 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.
