Origin & Breeding History: 'KLELE10670' originated from an open pollination conducted in the summer of 2005 between the female parent 05 0047 and pollen from an unknown male. The new variety was bred and developed by Guido von Tubeuf in Stuttgart, Germany. Seedlings were selected in May 2006 in Stuttgart based on flower colour and quality. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse tirals in April 2007 and assessed for flower colour and quality as well as plant uniformity. A single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLELE10670' in August 2009.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLELE10670' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2012 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11 cm pots on April 23, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on May 29, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
