Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA07146' originated from an open pollination that occurred during the summer of 2004 in Stuttgart, Germany. The female parent was the propriety seedling designated as U 100 and the male parent was unknown. In May 2005, 19 seedlings were selected in Stuttgart, one of which would be designated as 'KLECA07146'. Selection criteria included growth habit and flower colour. The new variety was evaluated in greenhouse trials and assessed for growth habit, branching habit and flowering time. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess powdery mildew resistance, rain resistance, continuous flowering and outdoor performance characteristics.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA07146' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2009 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 21, 2009. Each basket contained 4 cuttings with a total of 5 baskets per variety. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on July 8, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
