Origin & Breeding History: 'KIRORUF113' originated from a controlled cross conducted by the breeder, Mr. Ludwig Kientzler, in Gensingen, Germany. The cross was made between the female parent designated '09-307' and the male parent designated '09-029' in November 2010. In April 2011, 'KIRORUF113' was selected from the resulting progeny based on its compact growth habit, good branching, salmon-peach flower colour and ruffled petals in Gensingen, Germany. It was first propagated by unrooted cuttings in May 2011 in Gensingen, Germany.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial for 'KIRORUF113' 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.
