The seedlings were grown out in a trial and evaluated as a vegetative cutting line. The final selection was made in 1999. Selection criteria included small flowers, multi branching, vigorous growth habit, and reliable cutting propagation and cutting stability.
Tests & Trials: Trials were conducted during the summer of 2007 in Oxford Station, Ontario. Fifteen plants of each variety were individually grown in 15 cm pots in a poly house.
