Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ05137' originated from a controlled cross pollination between the proprietary seedling P 030 and a red-flowered seedling conducted in August 1994 in Stuttgart, Germany. From this cross, 70 seedlings were selected in June 1995 based on flower colour, plant growth habit and leaf colour. One of these seedlings was designated as 'KLEPZ05137'. The new variety 'KLEPZ05137' was evaluated at greenhouse trials from 1996-2004 in Stuttgart, Germany and assessed for flowering time, plant growth habit, flower and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ05137' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2115, 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.
