Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEP04133' originated from a controlled pollination between two unknown seedlings, made in Stuttgart, Germany in 2000. The new variety was selected in 2001 as a single plant from the resultant progeny, based on criteria for plant habit and flower colour. 'KLEP04133' was evaluated in greenhouse trials during January to May, 2002. The variety was assessed for plant growth, plant habit, pot performance, flower quality and early flowering. Outdoor trials were conducted during May to September 2002 to assess outdoor performance, flower quality, flower quantity and tolerance to weather and diseases.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEP04133' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 1998, purchased from the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in 2008. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
