The resultant seed was collected and sown in a greenhouse in Gilroy in December 2007. In April 2008, a single plant was selected based on criteria for flower colour, plant habit and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'LANZ0003' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2012 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on May 14, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 26, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
