Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEOE10180' was bred and developed by the breeder, Andrea Dohm, in Stuttgart, Germany. It originated from a pollination conducted in June 2007 between two proprietary seedlings. The resultant seedlings were selected in April 2008 in Stuttgart using stable anemone-type flowers with enlarged disc florets as the selection criteria. In January 2009, these selected seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials and assessed for uniformity of the anemone-type disc florets, and medium plant vigour. In August 2009, a single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLEOE10180'.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLEOE10180' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2012 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trials included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 11.5 cm pots on April 23, 2012. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on June 11, 2012. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) Colour Charts.
