Origin & Breeding History: 'Fisrodeep' originated from a hybridization between the female parent 'Fistaneon' and the male parent 'K97-2235-1', conducted in the summer of 2003, in Hillscheid, Germany. The seeds of the resultant offspring were taken to Galdar, Gran Canaria, Spain where 'Fisrodeep' was selected as a single seedling in the spring of 2004. Cuttings from 'Fisrodeep' were taken back to Hillscheid for further examination and for trial cultivation in 2005 and 2006. 'Fisrodeep' was selected based on flower colour, foliage colour and plant growth habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisrodeep' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2244, 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.
