Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEDP11104' was bred and developed by Martin Glawe in Stuttgart, Gernamy. It originated from a cross pollination conducted in June 2006 between a proprietary variety designated 'DCP 04 086' as the female parent, and the variety 'Fire' as the male parent. In May 2007, seedlings resulting from this cross were selected in Stuttgart based on their plant growth habit, branching characteristics, and flower colour. These seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials from September 2007 to May 2008 and assessed for early flowering, flower colour, branching, and indoor performance. 'KLEDP11104' was selected for commercialization in April 2010.

Tests & Trials: The trial of 'KLEDP11104' was conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2013 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. It included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 17, 2013. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on June 11, 2013. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
