Origin & Breeding History: 'Nuanilainp' originated from a controlled cross pollination conducted by the breeder, Daniel Bede McDonald, with NuFlora International Pty. Ltd., at the University of Sydney, Cobbitty in Camden, Australia, in September 2004. The cross was conducted between the female parent designated by X03.4.10 and the male parent designated by X03.4.7, both proprietary seedlings. A single plant from the resultant seedlings was selected in September 2005 in Cobbity, Australia, based on plant habit, floriferousness, flowering time, heat tolerance and flower colour. Asexual reproduction by cuttings was first conducted in October 2005 in Cobbitty, Australia.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Nuanilainp' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2011 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 25, 2011. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 14, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
