Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA08167' originated from the self pollination, by bud pollination, of the proprietary seedling 'V 182' conducted during the summer of 2004 in Stuttgart, Germany. In May 2005, twenty one seedlings were selected in Stuttgart based on growth habit and flower colour. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for production characteristics, early and uniform flowering, growth habit and branching characteristics. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess flower quality, continuous flowering, flower number and resistance to weather and disease. The seedling coded 'CA 05 0023' was subsequestly named 'KLECA08167'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA08167' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2010 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 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, 2010. 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 13, 2010. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
