Origin & Breeding History: 'PKMTAK1' originated from a cross made in 2001 in Sohus, Denmark. The female parent was a variety named 'Hot Lips' and the male parent was an un-named proprietary selection. The variety was selected in 2002 and 2003, based on its compact growth habit, small leaves and flower colour.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'PKMTAK1' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2007/1295, 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 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
