Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPZ10234' was bred and developed by Martin Glawe, in Stuttgart, Germany. It originated from a controlled pollination conducted in June 2004 between the proprietary seedling designated 'SI 018' as the female parent and variety 'Lady Ramona' as the male parent. From the resulting progeny, seedlings were selected in June 2005 using dark foliage colour, and pink flower colour as selection criteria. These seedlings were further assessed for good growth and branching, early flowering, and pot performance in greenhouse trials conducted in Stuttgart, Germany from January to May in 2006, 2007, and 2008. In April 2008, a single seedling was selected for commercialization and named 'KLEPZ10234'.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEPZ10234' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2010/1369, 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.
