Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ05148' originated from a controlled cross between two unknown seedlings conducted in June 1996 in Stuttgart, Germany. From this cross, 12 seedlings were selected in June 1996 based on flower colour and growth habit. One of these seedlings was designated as 'KLEPZ05148'. The new variety 'KLEPZ05148' was evaluated at greenhouse trials in 1998-2004 in Stuttgart, Germany and was assessed for flowering time, growth habit, flower and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ05148' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2116, purchased from the Bundessortenamt, 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.
