Origin & Breeding History: 'KLELE10724' originated from a controlled cross pollination conducted in the summer of 2007 between the female parent 06370 and the male parent 07132. The new variety was bred and developed by Guido von Tubeuf in Stuttgart, Germany. Seedlings were selected in May 2008 in Stuttgart based on flower time, plant habit, flower abundance and flower colour. The seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart in April 2009 and re-assessed. A single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLELE10724' in August 2009.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLELE10724' 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.
