Origin & Breeding History: The variety 'KLEPP08207' originated from a controlled cross pollination made in July 2003 in Stuttgart, Germany. The cross was between the varieties 'Royal Red' and 'Royal Dark Red'. 95 seedlings were selected based on criteria for growth habit, red flower colour and good performance characteristics. One of these seedlings was designated 'KLEPP08207'. 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 'KLEPP08207' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, reference number PEL2368, 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.
