Origin & Breeding History: 'Sunparasure' originated from an open pollination which took place at the Omi Research and Development Center of Suntory Flowers Ltd. in Higashiomi-shi, Shiga, Japan. The cross took place April to December 2006 between the female parent 'M8997' and an unknown male parent. Resultant seed was germinated and grown to maturity. 'Sunparasure' was selected in October 2007 based on its growth habit and flower colour.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sunparasure' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, 2012/0957, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office (CPVO) in Angers, France. The trial was conducted by the Naktuinbouw in Roelofarendsveen, Netherlands in 2013. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
