Abstract

A distinct cultivar of Lantana plant named ‘Red Butler’, characterized by its upright and outwardly spreading plant habit; freely flowering habit; and large inflorescences with red-colored flowers.

Description

Botanical classification/cultivar designation: Lantana camara cultivar Red Butler.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present Invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant, botanically known as Lantana camara, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name Red Butler.

The new Lantana is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventors in Hawthorne, Fla. The objective of the breeding program is to create compact Lantanas with red-colored flowers.

The new Lantana originated from a cross made by the Inventors in August, 2000 of the Lantana cultivar Dallas Red, not patented, as the female, or seed parent, with an unidentified Lantana selection as the male, or pollen parent. The new Lantana was selected as a single plant from the resulting progeny by the Inventors in a controlled environment in Hawthorne, Fla., on Jun. 30, 2001, on the basis of its growth habit and attractive flower coloration.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by terminal cuttings taken in a controlled environment in Hawthorne, Fla., since Jun. 30, 2001, has shown that the unique features of this new Lantana are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the cultivar Red Butler have not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment and culture 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 ‘Red Butler’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Red Butler’ as a new and distinct Lantana cultivar:

1. Upright and outwardly spreading plant habit.

2. Freely flowering habit.

3. Large inflorescences with red-colored flowers.

Plants of the new Lantana can be compared to plants of the female parent, the cultivar Dallas Red. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Hawthorne, Fla., plants of the new Lantana differed from plants of the cultivar Dallas Red in the following characteristics:

1. Plants of the new Lantana were more compact than plants of the cultivar Dallas Red.

2. Plants of the new Lantana had smaller leaves than plants of the cultivar Dallas Red.

3. Plants of the new Lantana had larger inflorescences than plants of the cultivar Dallas Red.

4. Plants of the new Lantana had red-colored flowers whereas plants of the cultivar Dallas Red had red, orange and yellow-colored flowers.

Plants of the new Lantana differ from plants of the male parent, the unidentified Lantana selection, primarily in the new Lantana's unique combination of flower coloration, and freely-flowering habit.

Plants of the new Lantana can be compared to plants of the cultivar Radiation, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Hawthorne, Fla., plants of the new Lantana differed from plants of the cultivar Radiation in the following characteristics:

1. Plants of the new Lantana were more upright and not as mounding as plants of the cultivar Radiation.

2. Leaves of plants of the new Lantana were lighter green in color than leaves of plants of the cultivar Radiation.

3. Plants of the new Lantana had larger inflorescences than plants of the cultivar Radiation.

4. Plants of the new Lantana had red-colored flowers whereas plants of the cultivar Radiation had orange and orange red-colored flowers.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate 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 photographs may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Lantana.

The photograph on the first sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Red Butler’ grown in a container.

The photograph on the second sheet comprises a close-up view of typical inflorescences and leaves of ‘Red Butler’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 1995 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. Plants used for the photographs and description were planted in two-gallon containers after rooting and grown for about three months during the spring in a polyethylene-covered greenhouse in Hawthorne, Fla. During the production of the plants in the greenhouse, day temperatures ranged from 18 to 38° C. and night temperatures ranged from 8 to 20° C.
