Origin & Breeding History: 'Kirine-50' was developed by the breeder, Mr. Daigaku Takeshita, an employee of Kirin Agribio Co., Ltd., in Tochigi, Japan. It originated from a controlled cross made in February 2007 in Tochigi, Japan, between two unnamed proprietary seedlings. 'Kirine-50' was selected as a single plant from the resultant progeny in September 2007 in De Lier, the Netherlands, based on its plant growth habit, better branching, flower size and flower colour.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Kirine-50' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2009 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. It included a total of 15 plants per variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on April 7, 2009. Measured characteristics were based on measurements taken from 10 plants or parts of plants on May 11, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
