The variety was selected for its compact and freely flowering habit. The objective was to develop a new campanula variety with a uniform and compact plant form and white flowers.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'PKMP06' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2006/1003, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by The National Institute of Agricultural Botany (NIAB) in Cambridge, United Kingdom, in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 1986 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
