Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEDG10118' originated from a hybrid cross conducted in May 2006 by the breeder, Martin Glawe, in Stuttgart, Germany. The cross involved the two proprietary varieties 'DSS ×allwoodii' as the female parent and 'DCP 06020' as the male parent. The seedlings were selected in May 2007 based on flower colour, semi-double flower type, plant growth habit and branching traits. The selected seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials from November 2007 to May 2008, and in 2009. A single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLEDG10118' in April 2010.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'KLEDG10118' was conducted in a polyhouse trial during the spring of 2014 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 12 cm pots on April 28, 2014. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on June 10, 2014. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
