Origin & Breeding History: 'Zalsanem' was developed at Rijsenhout, The Netherlands, from the controlled cross made in 2000, between the female parent, '96Y0255-6' and the male parent, '87G1069-2'. A single plant was selected for flower colour and form. The rhizome was divided onto 10 parts, from which 10 new plants arose. The propagation of the variety is done by dividing the rhizome in vivo and in vitro.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, CPVO application number 2004/0855, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by CGN Plant Variety Research, DLO Foundation, Wageningen, The Netherlands, during the summer of 2005.
