Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'SYEP22432' originated from a cross made in the summer of 2003 in Hillscheid, Germany. The female parent was a proprietary line, designated as 892, with bluish-red bracts, and the male parent was the variety 'Fispoin 7776', which has red bracts. The resultant seed was sown in a greenhouse in February-March, 2004. In December 2004, a single plant from the progeny was selected based on flower colour, plant habit and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'SYEP22432' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, purchased from Denmark. The trials were conducted by the Department of Horticulture at the University of Aarhus, Aarslev, Denmark, in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
