Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEC03092' was developed in Stuttgart, Germany. The new variety originated from a controlled cross made between the proprietary seedlings T111 and S51 in 2001. From this cross, the new variety designated 'KLEC03092' was selected in the summer of 2002, based on flower colour. The new variety was evaluated at greenhouse trials in Stuttgart in 2003 and 2004 and assessed for rooting, flowering and growth characteristics. Outdoor performance trials were conducted during 2002 and 2003 to assess outdoor performance, quality of flowers and resistance to weather and diseases.

Tests & Trials: The tests and trials for 'KLEC03092' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2006 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants of each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 25 cm baskets on April 20, 2006. Each basket contained 3 cuttings with a total of 7 baskets per variety. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 11 and 12, 2006. All colour measurements were made using the RHS Colour Chart 2001.
