Abstract

A new and distinct variety for Ground Cover Rose plant is provided which forms on a substantially continuous basis sprays of attractive bright amber and cream-orange blossoms with the reproductive organs commonly being visible at the center. The blossoms open on a reliable basis and retain their attractiveness upon aging. The new variety initially exhibits a dense and upright growth habit that changes to a spreading growth habit during the second year. The foliage is dark green and glossy and contrasts well with the blossom coloration. The surfaces of leaves commonly are somewhat curled and partially closed. The blossom petals commonly detach cleanly upon full maturity. The plant propagates well from cuttings and by budding. Excellent resistance to Blackspot, Powdery Mildew, and Rust are displayed, and the plant is particularly well suited for growing as an attractive ornamental ground cover in the landscape.

Description

Botanical/commercial classification: Rosa hybrida/Ground Cover Rose Plant.
Varietal denomination: cv. ‘NOA97400A’.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Ground Cover rose plants are known and are being used to advantage in an increasing number of landscape plans and home gardens. However, there remains a need for additional varieties of Ground Cover roses with the demand being the greatest for those having highly attractive blossoms in combination with good disease resistance.
The new variety of Rosa hybrida Ground Cover rose plant of the present invention was created at Gütersloh, Germany, by artificial pollination wherein two parents were crossed which previously had been studied in the hope that they would contribute the desired characteristics. The female parent (i.e., the seed parent) was the ‘Noatraum’ variety (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 7,282). The ‘Noatraum’ variety sometimes is identified as FLOWER CARPET PINK and is marketed in Europe under the HEIDETRAUM trademark. The male parent (i.e., the pollen parent) was an unnamed and unreleased seedling maintained by Noack Rosen at Gütersloh, Germany (non-patented in the United States). The parentage of the new variety can be summarized as follows:
 ‘Noatraum’×Unnamed Seedling.
The seeds resulting from the above pollination were sown and small plants were obtained which physically and biologically differ from each other. Selective study resulted in the identification of a single plant to the new variety.
It is found that the new variety of Ground Cover rose plant possesses the following combination of characteristics:
    • (a) forms in sprays attractive long-lasting bright amber and cream-orange blossoms with the reproductive organs commonly being visible at the center,
    • (b) initially exhibits a dense and upright growth habit that changes to a spreading growth habit during the second year,
    • (c) forms attractive glossy dark green foliage that contrasts well with the blossoms wherein the surfaces of the leaflets commonly are somewhat curled and partially closed,
    • (d) exhibits excellent disease resistance with respect to Blackspot, Powdery Mildew, and Rust, and
    • (e) is particularly well suited for growing as attractive ornamentation in the landscape.
The new variety meets the needs of the horticultural industry and can be grown to advantage as an attractive ornamental ground cover in parks, gardens, public areas, and residential landscapes.
The new variety of the present invention readily can be distinguished from its ancestors. For instance, the ‘Noatraum’ female parent displays pink blossoms, and the unnamed male parent displays red-purple blossoms and smaller foliage.
Also, the new variety of the present invention can be distinguished from similar Ground Cover varieties, such as the ‘Korsoalgu’ variety (non-patented in the United States) and the ‘Korpatetopf’ variety (non-patented in the United States) by an inspection of the blossom coloration. More specifically, the blossoms of the ‘Korsoalgu’ variety are Yellow-Orange Group 19A in coloration and those of the ‘Korpatetopf’ variety are Yellow-Orange Group 20B in coloration.
The new variety of the present invention beginning in 2000 has been asexually reproduced by the rooting of cuttings, and by budding. Such asexual reproduction as performed at Gütersloh, Germany, has demonstrated that the characteristics of the new variety are firmly fixed and stable and are strictly transmissible from one generation to another. The new variety asexually reproduces in a true to type manner from one generation to another.
The new variety of the present invention has been named ‘NOA97400A’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photographs show as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same, in color illustrations of this character, typical specimens of the new variety while growing outdoors. The illustrated rose plants were photographed during July, 2004, while growing in a field at Gütersloh, Germany. Such plants had been budded approximately one and one-half years earlier.
FIG. 1 illustrates a close view of the attractive amber and cream-orange blossoms of the new variety wherein the reproductive organs are visible at the center.
FIG. 2 illustrates at the right the upper and under surfaces of typical leaves, buds and glossy foliage, and at the left buds and flowers in various stages of opening as well as additional foliage. The configuration of the somewhat curled and partially closed leaflets is illustrated. Dimensions in centimeters are included at the center.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION
The chart used in the identification of the colors is that of The Royal Horticultural Society (R.H.S. Colour Chart) of London, England. Color terminology in common terms sometimes is included as an aid to the reader. Such color terminology is to be accorded its customary dictionary significance. The description is based on the observation of typical specimens of the new variety while growing outdoors during July at Gütersloh, Germany.
  • Class: Ground Cover.
  • Plant:
      • Form.—Vigorous, young plants exhibit a dense and upright growth habit, and with further maturity spread to form a compact bush that serves well as ground cover with dense foliage.
