Origin & Breeding History: 'KLET04065' originated from a controlled cross conducted in Stuttgart, Germany in June 2001. The cross was between proprietary seedling designated TT 104 and a dark red flowered seedling. From this cross 11 seedlings were selected for criteria based on flower colour and flowering time. The new variety was evaluated at greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany in 2003, and was assessed for production characteristics, branching, flowering time and growth 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 2694, purchased from The Netherlands. The trials were conducted by the Raad voor plantenrassen in 2005 at Wageningen, The Netherlands.
