Origin & Breeding History: 'Kironanete' originated from a controlled cross conducted by the breeder, Mr. Ludwig Kientzler, in Gensingen, Germany. The cross was made between the female parent designated '010-92' and the male parent designated '09-11' in November 2011. In April 2012, 'Kironanete' was selected from the resulting progeny based on its compact growth habit, dark red flower colour and ruffled flower petals in Gensingen, Germany. It was first propagated by unrooted cuttings in May 2012 in Gensingen, Germany.

Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'Kironanete' was conducted in a polyhouse during the summer of 2015 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial 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 May 11, 2015. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants, or parts of plants, of each variety on June 22, 2015. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
