Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ07202' originated from a controlled cross pollination conducted in July 2003 in Stuttgart, Germany. The cross was between the varieties 'Vineta' and the proprietary seedling Z 22073. In june 2004, 350 seedlings were selected, one of which would be named 'KLEPZ07202. Selection criteria included dark foliage, early flowering, unique flower colour and good performance. The new variety was evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart during 2005 to 2006. Outdoor trials were conducted to evaluate performance and tolerance to weather conditions.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ07202' is based on the UPOV Report of Technical Examination, application number PEL 2250, 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.
