Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECA10211' originated from a controlled pollination conducted in Stuttgart, Germany during the summer of 2007 between the female parent proprietary seedling CA 06 0197 and the male parent proprietary seedling CA 06 0249. Seedlings were selected in May 2008 based on plant growth habit and flower colour. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for flowering time, plant growth habit and branching characteristics. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess continuous flowering, flower abundance and tolerance to weather and disease. A single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLECA10211' in August 2009.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLECA10211' were conducted in the summer of 2012 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm shallow pots on August 7, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on September 28, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
