Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ07200' originated from a controlled cross pollination conducted in July 2003 in Stuttgart, Germany, between the variety 'Vineta' and the proprietary seedling Z21222. There were 350 seedlings selected in June 2004 based on plant growth habit, flower colour and early flowering. The new variety was evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany and assessed for the same characteristics. The new variety was named 'KLEPZ07200' and grown in outdoor trials to assess flowering, tolerance to weather conditions and outdoor performance characteristics.
Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ07200' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2288, purchased from the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. Trials were conducted at Hannover in 2009. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
