Origin & Breeding History: 'Oglger8026' was selected in Lompoc, California, USA in April 2008, for its vibrant burgundy with white edge flower colour. Plants will be maintained in the vegetative state and reproduced by vegetative cuttings in Encinitas, California.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Oglger8026' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2013 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants of the candidate variety and 12 plants of the reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings that were vernalized for 6 weeks prior to being transplanted into 15 cm shallow pots on April 26, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 13, 2013, with the exception of flower characteristics which were taken on June 24, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
