Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA05114' originated from an open pollinated cross between the proprietary seedling 'U 19' and an unknown male parent. The cross took place in June 2001 in Stuttgart, Germany. From this cross, 14 seedlings were selected in May 2002 based on flower colour and growth habit. The seedling designated as 'KLECA05114' was finally selected in September 2003 and evaluated in greenhouse trials to assess flowering time and growth habit. Outdoor performance trials were also conducted to assess rain resistance and tolerance to powdery mildew.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA05114' were conducted during the summer of 2007, in a polyhouse, in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 30 cm hanging baskets on May 1, 2007. Each hanging basket contained 4 cuttings with a total of 5 baskets per variety. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety (except for plant height where 5 plants were measured) on June 29, 2007. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
