Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA05101' was developed in Stuttgart, Germany. The new variety originated from a controlled cross made between the proprietary seedlings T73 and S51. From this cross, 18 seedlings were selected in Stuttgart, for criteria based on flower colour and growth habit. One of these seedlings was designated 'KLECA05101'. The new variety was evaluated at greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for flowering time and growth habit. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess rain resistance and tolerance to powdery mildew.

Tests & Trials: The tests and trials for 'KLECA05101' 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 June 29, 2006. All colour measurements were made using the RHS Colour Chart 2001.
