Origin & Breeding History: 'LANZ0002' originated from a cross pollination conducted in Gilroy, California, USA, in July 2007, between the female parent identified as 'G307-1' and pollen from the male parent identified as 'G292-1'. The new variety was bred and developed by the breeder, Shifeng Pan, in Gilroy, California, USA as part of a controlled breeding program. The resultant seed from the cross was collected and sown in a greenhouse in Gilroy, in December 2007. In April 2008, a single plant was selected based on flower colour, plant habit and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'LANZ0002' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2013 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 15 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 25, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 26, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
