It took Nic. Van Schagen & Zn. BV in Breezand, The Netherlands, many years of careful growing to build up a sizable stock before this cultivar, a mutant of T. Judith Leyster, finally became available for sale on a limited scale in the fall of 2005. Vanhof and Blokker Ltd., who have the exclusive commercial rights to market this cultivar in Canada, brought the first bulbs into the country.
