Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Verbena plant named ‘Balwildaav’, characterized by its purple-colored flowers; mounded, low-growing, decumbent plant habit; and freely basal-branching.

Description

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Verbena plant, botanically known as Verbena×hybrida, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name Balwildaav.
The new Verbena is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Somerville, Tenn. The objective of the breeding program was to develop new cultivars with a mounded decumbent plant habit, continuous flowering, freely-branching growth habit, and attractive flower and foliage colors.
The new Verbena originated from self-pollination made by the Inventor of the Verbena×hybrida cultivar Blue Princess, not patented. The cultivar Balwildaav was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross in a controlled environment in Somerville in 1997. Plants of the new Verbena differs from plants of the cultivar Blue Princess and a sibling cultivar, Balwilblu (U.S. Plant Patent application filed concurrently with this application) primarily in flower color.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by terminal cuttings taken at Somerville has shown that the unique features of this new Verbena are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations of asexual reproduction.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘Balwildaav’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Balwildaav’ as a new and distinct cultivar:
1. Purple-colored flowers.
2. Mounded, low-growing, decumbent plant habit.
3. Freely basal-branching.
The new Verbena can be compared to the cultivar, Sunmaref TP-V, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,411. However, in side-by-side comparisons conducted by the Inventor in Somerville plants of the new Verbena differ from plants of the cultivar Sunmaref TP-V in the following characteristics:
1. Plants of the new Verbena have larger flowers than plants of the cultivar Sunmarek TP-V.
2. Plants of the new Verbena have fewer flowers per spike than plants of the cultivar Sunmarek TP-V.
3. Plants of the new Verbena and the cultivar Sunmaref TP-V differ in flower color.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new cultivar as true as it reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photographs may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which more accurately describe the actual colors of the new Verbena. The photograph comprises a top perspective view of typical flowers of ‘Balwildaav’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The cultivar Balwildaav has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature and light intensity, without, however, any variance in genotype. The following observations and measurements describe plants about 10 weeks after planting rooted cuttings and grown 10-cm pots in West Chicago, Ill., under commercial practice in a double-layered acrylic-covered greenhouse with day temperatures about 21° C., night temperatures about 19° C., and light levels about 2,500 to 3,500 footcandles.
In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
Botanical classification: Verbena×hybrida cultivar Balwildaav.
Parentage: Self-pollination of Verbena×hybrida cultivar Blue Princess, not patented.
Propagation:
