Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Petunia plant named ‘Duesurbluvein’, characterized by its upright and outwardly spreading plant habit; freely basal branching; single flowers that are white in color with purple throat and venation.

Description

BOTANICAL CLASSIFICATION/CULTIVAR DESIGNATION

Petunia×hybrida cultivar Duesurbluvein.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present Invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Petunia plant, botanically known as Petunia×hybrida, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name Duesurbluvein.

The new Petunia is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Rheinberg, Germany. The objective of the breeding program is to create new Petunias with attractive flower colors.

The new Petunia originated from a cross made by the Inventor of a proprietary Petunia selection identified as code number 94-211, not patented, as the female, or seed parent, with a proprietary Petunia selection identified as code number S-2-22, not patented, as the male, or pollen parent. The new Petunia was selected as a single plant from the resulting progeny by the Inventor in Rheinberg, Germany, on the basis of its attractive flower color.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by terminal vegetative cuttings taken in Rheinberg, Germany has shown that the unique features of this new Petunia are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the cultivar Duesurbluvein have 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 traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘Duesurbluvein’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Duesurbluvein’ as a new and distinct cultivar:

1. Upright and outwardly spreading plant habit.

2. Freely basal branching.

3. Single flowers that are white in color with purple throat and venation.

Compared to plants of the female parent, the selection 94-211, plants of the new Petunia are more freely flowering, but have smaller flowers. In addition, plants of the new Petunia and the female parent differ in flower color as plants of the female flower have purple-colored petals. Compared to plants of the male parent, the selection S-2-22, plants of the new Petunia are more compact and have larger leaves and flowers. Compared to plants of the cultivar Duesurcream, U.S. Plant Patent application filed concurrently, plants of the new Petunia are more compact, have shorter internodes, shorter leaves, and have flower petals with more pronounced purple-colored venation on the upper surface.

Plants of the new Petunia are similar to plants of the cultivar Surfinia Blue Vein, not patented, in flower color. However, in side-by-side comparisons conducted in Rheinberg, Germany, plants of the new Petunia differed from plants of the cultivar Surfinia Blue Vein in the following characteristics:

1. Plants of the new Petunia were more compact and had shorter lateral branches than plants of the cultivar Surfinia Blue Vein.

2. Plants of the new Petunia had larger leaves than plants of the cultivar Surfinia Blue Vein.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH

The accompanying colored photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new cultivar, showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Petunia.

The photograph comprises a top perspective view of typical flowers, leaves and stems of ‘Duesurbluvein’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The cultivar Duesurbluvein has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, light intensity and daylength without, however, any variance in genotype.

The aforementioned photographs, following observations and measurements describe plants grown in Rheinberg, Germany, under commercial practice in a glass-covered greenhouse. Plants were about 16 weeks from cuttings and were grown in containers. During the production of the plants, day and night temperatures averaged 18° C. and light levels were about 4,500 lux.

In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, edition 1995, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
