Origin & Breeding History: 'Inuppear' originated from a mutation induced by radiation in the summer of 2004 in Gensingen, Germany. The new Nemesia variety was selected in the summer of 2004 for criteria based on flower colour, uniform growth habit, tolerance to cold temperatures and very early flowering. Asexual reproduction by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in the summer of 2004 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 16, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
