Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Fix 137' originated from a controlled cross made in the summer of 2002 in Hillscheid, Germany. The female parent was a white flowered proprietary line, designated 199-2043-8 and the male parent was the variety 'Tornado'. The resultant seed from the cross was sown in a greenhouse in early summer of 2003 and 'Fix 137' was selected in the Fall of 2003 from this progeny, based on flower colour, plant habit and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fix 137' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2335, purchased from the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. Trials were conducted at Hannover in 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
