Abstract: A new Calibrachoa plant named `KLECA09210` particularly distinguished by its single, purple flowers, and a semi-trailing form and growth habit, is disclosed.
Claim: We claim:

1. A new and distinct variety of Calibrachoa plant named `KLECA09210` as shown and described herein.
Description: Genus and species:Calibrachoa hybrid.

Variety denomination: `KLECA09210`.


The present invention comprises a new and distinct variety of Calibrachoa, botanically known as Calibrachoa hybrid and hereinafter referred to by the variety name `KLECA09210`. The new variety originated from an open pollination made in June2006 in Stuttgart, Germany. The female parent was the proprietary Calibrachoa plant `CA060011` (unpatented), while the male parent was an unknown individual Calibrachoa plant.

The new variety was first propagated via vegetative cuttings in May 2007 in Stuttgart, Germany and has been asexually reproduced by vegetative cuttings and in-vitro propagation by tissue culture of shoot tips in Stuttgart, Germany for more than30 generations. The present invention has been found to retain its distinctive characteristics through successive asexual propagations.

`KLECA09210` has not been made publicly available or sold more than one year prior to the filing date of this application.


The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of this new variety when grown under normal horticultural practices in Stuttgart, Germany. 1. Single, purple flowers; and 2. A semi-trailing form and growth habit.


This new Calibrachoa plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs which show flowers and foliage of the plant. The colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures. The photographs weretaken in May 2009 of a 5-month-old Calibrachoa plant; grown in a glass greenhouse in Stuttgart, Germany.

FIG. 1 shows the flowers and foliage at various stages of development.

FIG. 2 shows overall plant growth habit.


The following detailed descriptions set forth the distinctive characteristics of `KLECA09210`. The data which defines these characteristics were collected from asexual reproductions carried out in Stuttgart, Germany. The plant history wastaken in May 2009 on 5-month-old plants which were planted as rooted cuttings in a 10 centimeter pot and then grown in a glass greenhouse. The plants had no terminal pinches after potting. Color readings were taken under natural light. Colorreferences are primarily to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.), Fifth Edition (2007).
