This cultivar was widely distributed (as plants and a seedline) in the late 1970s and early 1980s, as a cultivar of S. eumorpha. It is very likely that it is a hybrid, as no record has ever been found of a pink form of S. eumorpha in the wild. Seeds produced through selfing produced uniform seedlings, as do species; it is likely that the pink color comes from one of the red-flowered speces in Sinningia, perhaps back-crossed to S. eumorpha and selected over several generations to stabilize the color.

This cultivar was crossed with a pure white form to produce the intermediate hybrid S. ‘Pale Beauty’.
