Origin & Breeding History: 'Innkarwhi' originated from a cross conducted in the summer of 2001 in Gensingen, Germany. The female parent was an unnamed variety designated as N01 2-4 and the male parent was an unnamed variety designated as N01 4-3 tet 4. The new Nemesia variety was selected in the spring of 2002 for criteria based on flower colour, strong scent, compact growth habit and continuous flowering. Asexual reproduction by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in the spring of 2002 in Gensingen, Germany.
Tests & Trials: The PBR trials were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2007 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trials included a total of 15 plants of the candidate variety and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 10.5 cm pots on March 20, 2007. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on May 14, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
