Origin & Breeding History: 'KLELE12095' was bred and developed by the breeder, Guido von Tubeuf. It originated from a hybrid cross conducted in September 2008, in Nairobi, Kenya, between a Lobelia designated '077', as the female parent, and a Lobelia designated 'LE 06 0052', as the male parent. From the resulting progeny, seedlings were selected in May 2009, in Stuttgart, Germany, for their flower colour, earliness of flowering, plant vigour and growth habit. These selected seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials from February to May 2010, 2011, and 2012, in Stuttgart, Germany, where they were further assessed for earliness of flowering, flower colour, plant uniformity, plant vigour and growth habit. In May 2011, in Stuttgart, Germany, 'KLELE12095' was selected for commercialization.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial of 'KLELE12095' was conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2015 at BioFlora Inc. 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 that were each transplanted into an 11.5 cm pot on April 13, 2015. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on May 20, 2015. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
