Origin & Breeding History: 'Petpiblo' originated from a controlled cross made in July 2000 in Enkhuizen, The Netherlands, between the female parent A0998 and the male parent X0910. A single plant was selected from the resultant progeny in May 2001 based on growth habit, earliness, flower colour, and stability to become 'Petpiblo'.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials were conducted in a poly house in the spring of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 15 plants of each variety individually grown in 15 cm plastic pots. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart.
