Abstract

A petunia cultivar particularly distinguished by colored flowers between red-purple and purple, compact habit and good basal branching.

Description

Genus and species: Petunia hybrida.
Variety denomination: ‘Whip Blurose’.
BACKGROUND OF THE NEW PLANT
The present invention comprises a new and distinct cultivar of petunia, botanically known as Petunia hybrida, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Whip Blurose’. The new cultivar is asexually reproduced from vegetative cuttings and tissue culture resulting from the cross of the seed/pod parent 99-264-3, a single purple proprietary line that is unnamed and unpatentedבYellow Horizon’, a seed propagated commercial line that is unpatented. ‘Whip Blurose’ is a product of a planned breeding program intended to create new petunia plants with blue rose colored flowers, compact habit, good basal branching and moderately vigorous growth.
The new cultivar was created in 1999 in Gilroy, Calif. and has been asexually reproduced repeatedly by vegetative cuttings and tissue culture in Gilroy, Calif., Andijk, The Netherlands, and Guatemala over a three-year period. The plant has also been trialed at Gilroy, Calif., Litchfield, Mich. and Andijk, The Netherlands. The present invention has been found to retain its distinctive characteristics through successive asexual propagations; and this novelty is firmly fixed.
DESCRIPTION OF PHOTOGRAPH
This new petunia plant is illustrated by the accompanying photograph which shows blooms, buds, and foliage of the plant in full color, the colors shown being as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures.
The photograph shows the mature flowers.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW CULTIVAR
The following detailed descriptions set forth the distinctive characteristics of ‘Whip Blurose’. The data, which defines these characteristics, were collected from asexual reproductions carried out in Gilroy, Calif. The plant history was taken on 10 months old plants grown in one-gallon pots in fall/winter season, in a poly-covered greenhouse under 2-4 hours supplemental light and color readings were taken in the greenhouse in the winter season under natural light. Color references are primarily to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.). Texture description details were observed under a dissecting microscope according to The New Royal Horticultural Society Dictionary of Gardening (1992).

COMPARISON WITH KNOWN CULTIVARS
Compared to its female parent 99-264-3 in the following ways: The female parent has a flower color that is purple with a yellow throat compared to the blue rose color. The female parent has a more vigorous trailing plant habit. The female parent is later to flower.
Compared to its male parent ‘Yellow Horizon’ in the following ways: ‘Yellow Horizon’ has a large yellow flower compared to ‘Whip Blurose’, which has a small blue rose flower color. ‘Yellow Horizon’ grows more upright than does ‘Whip Blurose’.
