Origin & Breeding History: 'Inuprasp' is a product of a planned breeding program conducted at InnovaPlant GmbH & Co. KG, Gensingen, Germany. The objective of the program was to create a new interspecific hybrid between annual and perennial Nemesia species to obtain the growth performance of perennial types and the powerful colour and flowering of annual types. 'Inuprasp' originated from a cross conducted in 2001. It was selected in the spring of 2002 based on its upright growth habit, very early and continuous flowering, sterility and flower colour and size.
Tests & Trials: The tests and trials for 'Inuprasp' were conducted in a greenhouse at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario during the spring of 2006. The trial included 15 plants of each variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11 cm pots on May 23, 2006. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 5, 2006. All colour characteristics were determined using the 2001 Royal Horticultural society (RHS) colour chart.
