age, early ?owering, and a medium sized plant habit. ‘Fisearltez’ originates as a naturally occurring whole plant mutation discovered by the breeder in a ?owering trial of the parent variety ‘Fiscor,’ U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,364, in late 2000 in Dorsten, Germany. ‘Fisearltez’ was further examined and

The measurements were taken in in Hillscheid, Germany, latitude 500 north, on Dec. 10, 2009 on about 20 week old plants that were grown on benches in a greenhouse. Cultiva

asexually propagated, by terminal tip cuttings, starting in the spring of 2001. As the ?owering response may be in?uenced by many factors, the resulting plant was trialed and examined for stability through several years in the annual fall trial cultivation. The characteristics of ‘Fisearltez’ are ?rmly ?xed and retained through successive generations of asexual repro duction.


tion of these plants had started in late July 2009 with planting rooted cuttings in 14 cm pots and pinching about 2 weeks later. The plants were grown under natural day light in the fall (no black cloth used to initiate earlier ?owering) and at the moderately warm temperature of 180 C. for the bench heat in

‘Fisearltez’ has not been observed under all possible envi

ronmental conditions. The phenotype may vary signi?cantly



with variations in environment such as temperature, light

intensity and day length. Plant Breeder’s Rights for this cultivar were applied for in Canada on Feb. 11, 2009 and in Germany on Dec. 22, 2008. ‘Fisearltez’ has not been made publicly available more than one year prior to the ?ling of this application. The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be basic characteristics of the new variety. The
