Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA08182' originated from a controlled pollination between the proprietary seedlings 'CA 05 0643' and 'X 278' conducted during the summer of 2005 in Stuttgart, Germany. In May 2006, four seedlings were selected in Stuttgart based on plant growth habit, flower colour, double flowers and early flowering. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for production characteristics, growth habit, and early and uniform flowering. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess flower stability under heat stress, flower quality, and resistance to weather and disease. The seedling coded 'CA 06 0157' was subsequestly named 'KLECA08182'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA08182' 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.
