Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ10272' was bred and developed by Martin Glawe, in Stuttgart, Germany. It originated from a controlled pollination conducted in September 2005 between the proprietary seedlings 'PZ 04112' and 'P2 04 0104'. From the resulting progeny, 14 seedlings were selected using growth habit, branching characteristics, and flower colour as selection criteria. These seedlings were further assessed in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, Germany for early flowering, good branching, pot performance and good cutting production. Outdoor performance trials were also conducted to assess plant growth and health, flower abundance, and tolerance to weather and disease. This selected seedling was named 'KLEPZ10272'.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ10272' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2010/1382, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2011. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
