Origin & Breeding History: 'Zalsatal' originated in June 2005 as a seed from the crossing of the female parent variety 537-1 and the male parent variety 20419-10. 'Zalsatal' was developed at Rijsenhout, the Netherlands and was selected for flower colour. The rhizom 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 'Zalsatal' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20090491, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by Naktuinbouw in Roelofarendsveen, The Netherlands in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
