Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisnow' was derived from a hybridization made in 2002 by the breeder Angelika Utecht in Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain. The female parent was the seedling i99/2043/8, a self seedling from the white flowered variety St. 1236 and the pollen parent was a plant from among the seed propagated variety 'Tornado White', with white single type flowers and deep green glossy leaves. The first selection of the seedling was in May, 2003 in Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain. Cuttings from the selected seedling were taken back to Hillscheid, Germany for further examination and trial review in the spring of 2004. The general aim was to create a variety with numerous, single type white flowers that could be combined with the group of varieties called 'Decora' or 'Cascades'.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisnow' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number PEL2045, 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.
