Origin & Breeding History: 'Sunnipariho' originated from a cross between two proprietary breeding lines, made at Higashiomi-shi, Shiga-ken, Japan in 2003. Seedlings from the cross were sown and grown in pot trials until October 2004. Several seedlings were selected for plant shape and flower colour. Those seedlings were propagated by cuttings and grown in pot and bedding trials in 2005. 'Sunnipariho' was selected in October 2005.
Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2007 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants of each variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11cm pots on May 8, 2007. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 27, 2007. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
