Origin & Breeding History: 'KLET04064' originated from a controlled cross conducted in Stuttgart, Germany in June 2001. The cross was between the proprietary seedlings TT 063 and TT 104. From this cross 17 seedlings were selected for criteria based on plant habit, flower colour and plant vigour. The new variety was evaluated at greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany in 2003, and was assessed for growth characteristics, branching, early flowering and plant habit.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV (International Union for the Protection of New Varieties of Plants) report of Technical Examination, reference number ANJ 2693, purchased from The Netherlands. The trials were conducted by the Raad voor plantenrassen in 2005 at Wageningen, The Netherlands.
