Origin & Breeding History: 'Gabrielle' (breeders reference KJ2003-0561) was developed by the breeder, Knud Jepsen in Hinnerup, Denmark as part of a planned breeding program with the objective to create new freely-flowering Kalanchoe varieties with large flowers and numerous petals per flower. It originated from a cross between the female parent '2001-1856' and the male parent 'Celine', made in January 2003. The new kalanchoe variety was selected in February 2004 based on flower colour, numerous petals per flower and excellent post production longevity.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, CPVO reference number 2004/0210, application number KAL 696, grant number 16097, purchased from the CPVO, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2004. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart.
