Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEDH13033' originated from a hybrid cross conducted in August 2008, in Stuttgart, Germany, between two unknown parents. From the resulting progeny, seedlings were selected in May 2009 for their medium, compact growth habit, leaf and branch quality, and flower size, colour and shape. The selections were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart in May 2010 to assess disease resistance and flower performance. 'KLEDH13033' was selected in May 2012 for commercialization.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEDH13033' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2014/1525, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, in Angers, France. The trial was conducted in 2015 by the National Institute of Agricultural Botany, in Cambridge, United Kingdom. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
