Origin & Breeding History: 'KRBELIN02' was bred and developed by the breeder Lubbertus H. Koppe in Ermelo, The Netherlands, as part of a planned breeding program. 'KRBELIN02' originated from a hybrid cross conducted in January 2008, between the female parent '99BREX-31' and the male parent 'KV03B265-08'. 'KRBELIN02' was selected in January 2009 based on leaf colour and plant growth habit. Asexual reproduction of 'KREBELIN02', by cuttings, was first conducted in February 2009 in Ermelo, The Netherlands.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KRBELIN02' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2011/0580, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2011. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
