Origin & Breeding History: 'Bonpridepcom' was discovered as a whole plant mutation of 'Bonpripicom' in January 2005 in an isolated area at Bonza Botanicals Pty Limited in Yellow Rock, New South Wales. The discovered plant was propagated by cuttings and grown in pots in a glasshouse. A trial was carried out in a controlled environment from August 2005 to December 2006 during which the botanical characteristics of the plant were examined. It was concluded that this Euphorbia hybrid plant was distinguishable from any other varieties based on its plant habit, plant vigour, freely branching habit, strong stems that resist breakage, foliage colour and bract colour, and that its characteristics are uniform and stable. It was subsequently named 'Bonpridepcom'.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Bonpridepcom' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2009/0531, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Department of Horticulture at the University of Aarhus in Aarslev, Denmark, in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
