Origin & Breeding History: 'KLEOE14227' was bred and developed by the breeder, Silke Wagener, in Stuttgart, Germany. It originated from a controlled cross conducted during the summer of 2010, in Nairobi, Kenya, between the selection designated 'OE 2008 0238', as the female parent, and the selection designated 'OE 2009 0761', as the male parent. From the resulting progeny, seedlings were selected in May 2011, in Stuttgart, Germany, for their branching habit, leaf quality, and flower size, colour and shape. These seedlings were evaluated in greenhouse trials in Stuttgart, in the spring of 2012, 2013 and 2014, and assessed using prior selection criteria, as well as, plant vigour, disease resistance, and time of flowering. In May 2014, in Stuttgart, Germany, 'KLEOE14227' was selected for commercialization.

Tests & Trials: The detailed description of 'KLEOE14227' is based on the UPOV report of Technical Examination, application number 2015/1630, purchased from the Community Plant Variety Office in Angers, France. The trials were conducted by the Bundessortenamt under reference number OST 676 in Hannover, Germany, in 2016. The colour determinations were made using the 2007 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
