Origin & Breeding History: 'LAN 876' originated from a controlled cross conducted by the breeder, in 2007, between the female parent variety 'LAN 508' and the male parent variety 'Clippo Tutti Fruitti'. The new variety was bred and developed by the breeder, Thomas Psenner, in Bozano, Italy. A single plant from the resultant seedlings was selected in August 2008, in Bolzano, Italy based on flower colour, flower size, plant habit, leaf size and leaf colour. Asexual reproduction by cuttings was first conducted in November 2007 in Bolzano, Italy.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'LAN 876' 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.
