Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA07161' originated from a controlled cross pollination between the proprietary seedlings CA 050663 and CA 050660, conducted in 2005 in Stuttgart, Germany. In May 2006, 17 seedlings were selected in Stuttgart, one of which would be designated as 'KLECA07161'. Selection criteria included growth habit, petal number and flower colour. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for early flowering, growth habit and plant shape. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess powdery mildew resistance, rain resistance and continuous flowering.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA07161' 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.
