Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ05129' originated from a controlled cross conducted between the proprietary seedling 'Z 96 134' and the variety 'Esprit' in August 1998 in Stuttgart, Germany. From this cross, 280 seedlings were selected in June 1999 based on growing strength, flower colour and leaf colour. One of these seedlings was designated as 'KLEPZ05129'. The new variety 'KLEPZ05129' was evaluated at greenhouse trials from 1998-2004 in Stuttgart, Germany and was assessed for flowering time, growth habit, flower and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ05129' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number 20060673, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. 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.
