Origin & Breeding History: 'KLECH13020' was bred and developed by the breeder Katinka Wilde in Stuttgart, Germany. 'KLECH13020' originated from a controlled cross between the proprietary varieties 'CH 08 0199' and 'CH 08 0198' between July and August 2008. The resultant seedlings were selected in December 2008 based on flower characteristics and further evaluated for plant growth habit, branching, time of flowering, and flower colour during greenhouse trials under artificial light from January to July 2010 and 2011. 'KLECH13020' was selected for commercialization in May 2012.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLECH13020' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2014/1526, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2015. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
