Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEBD07513' originated from a controlled hybridization conducted in Stuttgart, Germany in June 2004 between the female proprietary seedling designated 'X 1002' and the male proprietary seedling designated 'X 2694'. The resulting progeny were evaluated in greenhouse trials to assess selection criteria and in outdoor performance trials to assess sensitivity to weather conditions, tolerance to botrytis, colour stability and flowering period. 'KLEBD07513' was selected in May 2005 based on its large flowers, compact growth habit and abundance of flowers.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLEBD07513' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2008 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. There were 15 plants of each variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on March 18, 2008. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on May 12, 2008. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
