Origin & Breeding History: 'OSTZ0001' was bred and developed by the breeder, Theodore C.M. van Kleinwee, in Enkhuizen, Netherlands, as part of a controlled breeding program. It originated from an open pollinated cross between a proprietary line with yellow flower colour, designated '7-47-2' as the female parent, and an unknown male parent. The cross was conducted in June 2006. The resultant seed was collected and sown in a greenhouse in Enkhuizen in March 2007. In August 2007, a single plant was selected using flower colour, plant growth habit and production characteristics as the selection criteria. This plant was named 'OSTZ0001'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'OSTZ0001' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2012 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trials included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on April 23, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 11, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) Colour Charts.
