Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisrello' was derived from the self pollination in 1993 of the seedling I92-61-2, which has very light pink nearly white semi-double flowers with medium green foliage without zonage, by the breeder Angelika Utecht in Hillscheid, Germany. The first selection of the seedling was in the spring of 1994 in Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany for further examination trial review beginning in the spring of 1999. The main selection criteria were flower colour, plant habit and growth characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisrello' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number PEL2037, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2006. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
