Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'KLEPZ08220' originated from a controlled cross pollination made in March 2001 in Stuttgart, Germany. The cross was between the proprietary seedling designated 2 99 289 and the variety 'Guido'. 205 seedlings were selected based on criteria for foliage colour, leaf zone and flower colour. One of these seedlings was designated 'KLEPZ08220'. The new variety was evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany and assessed for growth, early flowering and colour quality. Outdoor trials were conducted to assess growth habit, abundance of flowering and tolerance to heat and rain.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ08220' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2363, purchased from the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany. Trials were conducted at Hannover in 2010. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
