The new variety was selected by the breeder based on early flowering, compact growth habit, bract colour and foliage colour. 'SYEP0791' was first propagated in the spring of 2008 in Hillscheid, Germany and tested in trials at the greenhouses in Hillscheid, Germany, Enkhuizein, The Netherlands and Boulder, Colorado, USA.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'SYEP0791' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2010/2356, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the University of Aarhus in Aarslev, Denmark, in 2011. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
