Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEOE06150' originated from a controlled cross pollination made in Stuttgart, Germany in 2004, between an unnamed proprietary seedling and an unknown seedling. From this cross, 300 seedlings were selected and evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany in 2005-2006. 'KLEOE06150' was selected for its growth habit and flower colour.

Tests & Trials: The trials for 'KLEOE06150' were conducted in a polyhouse at BioFlora in St. Thomas, Ontario, during the spring of 2008. The trials included 15 plants of each variety grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11 cm pots on March 18, 2008. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 14, 2008. All colour characteristics were determined using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
