Origin & Breeding History: 'Fismirwhi' originated from a pollination between 'Fiselfi' and a mixture of pollen from about 50 plants with red coloured bracts conducted in June of 2002. The new Poinsettia was discovered and developed by the breeder Katharina Zerr, an employee of Fischer Germany GmbH, in Hillscheid, Germany, as part of a planned breeding program. 'Fismirwhi' was selected in October of 2003 based on colour and branching. Asexual reproduction of the variety was first conducted in May 2004, in Hillscheid, Germany when the selection was grafted to rootstocks of 'Beckman's Altrosa'.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Fismirwhi' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 2008/0764, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Department of Horticulture at the University of Aarhus, Aarslev, Denmark, in 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
