Origin & Breeding History: 'Ingrid' originated from a cross made in February 2003 in Hinnerup, Denmark, between the female parent 'KJ 2003 0381' and the male parent 'Ally'. The new Kalanchoe variety is the product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder, Knud Jepsen. 'Ingrid' was selected as a single flowering plant by the breeder in November 2003 based on flower colour, flower size and foliage colour. Asexual reproduction by cuttings of 'Ingrid' was first conducted in February 2004.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Ingrid' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20051360, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, 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.
