Origin & Breeding History: 'Naomi' originated from a cross made in 2003 in Hinnerup, Denmark, between the female parent 'Celine' and the male parent designated 'KJ 2001 1858'. The new Kalanchoe variety 'Naomi', experimental designation 'KJ 2003 0785', was the product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder, Knud Jepsen. 'Naomi' was selected by the breeder as a single flowering plant based on flower colour, flower size, number of petals and production characteristics.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Naomi' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20050706, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Anger, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2006. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
