Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisbildeep' originated from a hybridization between the female parent 'Fisruby' and the male parent 'Colorcade Coral Pink', conducted in the summer of 2003, in Hillscheid, Germany . The seed of the resultant offspring was taken to Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain where 'Fisbildeep' was selected as a single seedling in the spring of 2004. Cuttings from 'Fisbildeep' were sent back to Hillscheid for further selection and trial cultivation from the spring through summer of 2005 and again in 2006. 'Fisbildeep' was selected based on flower colour, double flower type and plant growth habit

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisbildeep' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2241, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2008. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
