Origin & Breeding History: 'Sarah' originated from a cross made in June 2004 in Hinnerup, Denmark, between the female parent 'Celine' and the male parent 'KJ 2003 0936'. The new Kalanchoa variety 'Sarah' is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the breeder, Knud Jepsen. 'Sarah' was selected by the breeder as a single flowering plant in March 2005 in Hinnerup, Denmark based on plant size, leaf colour, leaf size, flower colour and flower form. Asexual reproduction by cuttings of 'Sarah' was first conducted in July 2005.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'Sarah' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 20060755, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office, Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt in Hannover, Germany, in 2007. Colour determinations were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
