Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'KLECA09204' originated from a controlled pollination between the proprietary seedlings 'CA 06 0157' and 'CA 05 0016' conducted during the summer of 2006 in Stuttgart, Germany. Fourteen seedlings from the resultant progeny were selected based on criteria for plant growth habit, double flower form and flower colour. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany and assessed for early flowering and growth habit. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess performance, double flower stability, continuous flowering and tolerance to weather and disease. The selected seedling was named 'KLECA09204'.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA09204' were conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2011 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 11, 2011. 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 June 29, 2011. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
