Origin & Breeding History: 'Zalsaden' originated from a controlled pollination between the seed parent 98441-5 and the pollen parent 97167-3 conducted in 1999 at Hillegom, The Netherlands. A single plant was selected for flower colour and flower form. The rhizome was divided into 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 of 'Zalsaden' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20060806, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by Naktuinbouw in Wageningen, The Netherlands in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
