Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEPH07125' originated from a controlled cross conducted during May to September 2003, in Stuttgart, Germany, between the proprietary seedlings V 030 and V 108. In May 2004, seven seedlings were selected based on plant habit, leaf appearance and flower colour, one of these varieties was designated as 'KLEPH07125'. The new variety was evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart and assessed for growth habit, plant habit and flowering time. Outdoor performance trials were conducted to assess rain resistance, tolerance to powdery mildew and continuous flowering.
Tests & Trials: Trials for 'KLEPH07125' were conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2009 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial included a total of 15 plants each of the candidate and reference varieties. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings and transplanted into 15 cm pots on April 30, 2009. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants of each variety on May 27, 2009. All colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
