Origin & Breeding History: In May 1997, 'G 14' as the female parent and 'Aurea 09' as the male parent were crossed at Wateringen, The Netherlands. In October 1997, 12 seedlings were obtained from that cross, grown in pots in a glasshouse and evaluated. In June 1998, one seedling was selected based on its growth habit, flower size and colour. The selected plant was propagated in vitro and grown in pots in a trial from April 2000 to November 2000 at Wateringen where it was examined and named 'Bodega'. The breeders reference for this variety is se 080-6.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2002/1908, application number INC 798, grant number 14893, purchased from the CPVO, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the CGN Plant Variety Research, WOT-unit, Wageningen, The Netherlands in 2004.
