Origin & Breeding History: 'Kirine-15' is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder in Tochigi, Japan. It originated from a cross in March 2004 between the variety 'White Wing' as the female parent and the seed variety Nemesia strumosa 'Nebula Orange' as the male parent. 'Kirine-15' was selected in September 2004 based on its freely branching and vigorous growth habit, sterility and tolerance to heat and other weather extremes.
Tests & Trials: The tests and trials for 'Kirine-15' 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 March 31, 2006. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants per variety on May 9, 2006. All colour characteristics were determined using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
