Abstract

A new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant cultivar is disclosed, characterized by a decorative-type inflorescence with disc florets becoming more visible with aging, consistent flowering response to short days, blooming consistently after 63 days of short day length, free branching habit, purple ray florets, a very uniform round growth habit, and a large quantity of blooms per flowering branch.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Chrysanthemum plant, botanically known as Chrysanthemum morifolium.
Variety denomination: The new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant is hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Gedi Two Pad.’
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The new cultivar is a product of hybridization of a female parent variety, ‘Cassano’ (undistributed in the United States) and a male parent variety ‘Ampiro’ (undistributed in the United States). The new cultivar was discovered and selected by the inventor in September 1996.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by apical tip cutting and meristem tissue culture was performed in Oxnard, Calif. and has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type on successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar ‘Gedi Two Pad’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, daylength, 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 ‘Gedi Two Pad.’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Gedi Two Pad’ as a new and distinct Chrysanthemum cultivar:
1. Decorative-type inflorescence with disc florets becoming more visible with aging,
2. Consistent flowering response to short days, blooming consistently after 63 days of short day length,
3. Free branching habit,
4. Purple ray florets,
5. Very uniform round growth habit, and
6. Large quantity of blooms per flowering branch.
Plants of the new cultivar are similar to plants of the female parent variety, ‘Cassano’ in most horticultural characteristics, however plants of the new cultivar have fewer disc florets and plants of the new cultivar bloom naturally three weeks earlier than plants of the female parent variety.
Plants of the new cultivar are similar to plants of the male parent variety, ‘Ampiro,’ however the new cultivar a wider diameter inflorescence and naturally blooms three weeks earlier than plants of the male parent variety.
In comparison to the commercially available variety ‘Cleargar’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,300), ‘Gedi Two Pad’ blooms earlier naturally, has more inflorescences per flowering branch, and has fewer ray florets.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The photograph shows a plant of ‘Gedi Two Pad’ grown in a six-inch container. One cutting was used in the pot.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
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. The following observations and measurements describe plants grown in Oxnard, Calif. during the month of December and January. The age of the observed plants is 86 days from a rooted cutting. The growing temperature ranged from 55° to 68° F. at night to 60° to 75° F. during the day. Measurements and numerical values represent averages of typical flowering types.
Botanical classification: Chrysanthemum morifolium cultivar ‘Gedi Two Pad’.
