Origin & Breeding History: 'Pacyell' originated from a cross made during the summer of 2005 in Dresden, Germany. The female parent was an unnamed seedling which originated from a selfed seedling of the variety 'Botham's Surprise' and the male parent was a mix of pollen from different white flowered zonal pelargonium varieties. The new variety was selected from the resultant seedlings in June 2006, based on criteria for yellow flower colour, flower type, compact plant habit, dark foliage colour and very early flowering. Asexual reproduction of the new pelargonium by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in January 2007, in a controlled environment in Dresden, Germany.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Pacyell' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2318, 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.
