Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'Fisblirange' originated from a controlled cross made in the summer of 2005 in Hillscheid, Germany. The female parent was a white flowered proprietary line, designated K03-8222-6 and the male parent was a red flowered proprietary line, designated K99-4355-5. The resultant seed from the cross was sown in a greenhouse in January 2006 and 'Fisblirange' was selected in April 2006 from this progeny, based on flower colour, plant habit and early flowering response.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fisblirange' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2373, 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.
