Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ05141' originated from a controlled cross between the proprietary seedlings F 012 and ZL 471 conducted in August 2001 in Stuttgart, Germany. From this cross 12 seedlings were selected in June 2002 based on flower colour and leaf zone appearance. One of these seedlings was designated as 'KLEPZ05141'. The new variety 'KLEPZ05141' was evaluated at greenhouse trials in 2003 in Stuttgart, Germany and was assessed for flowering time, growth habit, flower quality and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ05141' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2117, purchased from the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
