Variety used for comparison: 'KLEVP12442' (Lascar Big Eye Purple)
Summary: The curvature of the longitudinal axis of the corolla lobe is incurved for 'KLEVP12449' while the corolla lobe is straight for 'KLEVP12442'. When the corolla is newly open, the colour on the inner side is violet on the upper lobes and lighter violet on the lower lobes of 'KLEVP12449' while it is uniformly violet on all lobes for 'KLEVP12442'. When the corolla is fully open, the colour on the inner side is violet on the upper lobes and lighter violet on the lower lobes for 'KLEVP12449' while it is lighter violet on the upper lobes and more lighter violet on the lower lobes for 'KLEVP12442'. When the corolla is fully open or faded, the difference in colour between the upper and lower lobes on the inner side of the corolla is more pronounced for 'KLEVP12449' than it is for 'KLEVP12442'.

Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEVP12449' was bred and developed by the breeder, Ruijun Li, an employee of NuFlora International Pty. Ltd. at the University of Sydney, Cobbitty in Camden, New South Wales, Australia. It originated from a controlled cross pollination conducted in April 2008 between the proprietary varieties '1 S 112' as the female parent and 'V 842' as the male parent. In January 2009, in Cobbitty, seedlings obtained from this cross were selected based on their flower colour and plant growth habit, and further evaluated from January to May 2009 in greenhouse trials to assess flowering time and flower colour. In May 2011, in Stuttgart, Germany, 'KLEVP12449' was selected for commercialization.
Tests & Trials: The comparative trial of 'KLEVP12449' was conducted in a polyhouse during the spring of 2014 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. It included a total of 20 plants each of the candidate and reference variety. All plants were grown from rooted cuttings which were transplanted into 15.2 cm shallow pots on April 23, 2014. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plants or parts of plants of each variety on June 4, 2014. All colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
