Abstract

A petunia cultivar particularly distinguished by white colored flowers, compact habit and good basal branching.

Description

Genus and species: Petunia hybrida.
Variety denomination: ‘Reflec White’.
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 ‘Reflec White’. The new cultivar is asexually reproduced from vegetative cuttings and tissue culture resulting from the cross of the seed/pod parent 99-207-3, a pink trailing proprietary line that is unnamed and unpatented ×99-161-1, a double pink proprietary line that is unnamed and unpatented.
‘Reflec White’ is a product of a planned breeding program intended to create new petunia plants with white 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 ‘Reflec White’. The data, which defines these characteristics, were collected from asexual reproductions carried out in Gilroy, Calif. The plant history was taken on 6 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. Plants had been cut back numerous times prior to data readings being taken. 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
‘Reflec White’ differs from the female parent 99-207-3 in the following ways: The female parent has pink flowers that are single in flower form. ‘Reflec White’ has white flowers that are double in flower form and a more vigorous plant.
‘Reflec White’ differs from the male parent 99-161-1 in the following ways: The male parent has pink flowers that are double in flower form on a plant that grows more upright. ‘Reflec White’ has white double flowers on a plant that is less upright and more spreading in growth.
