Abstract

A new Calibrachoa plant particularly distinguished by medium to large coral-pink flowers with red markings, early and continuous flowering, medium green foliage with small lanceolate leaves, and a moderately-vigorous, round, bushy, medium tight plant habit, and an initially spreading and later prostrate or trailing plant habit, is disclosed.

Description

Genus and species: Calibrachoa sp.
Variety denomination: ‘Cal Corink’.
BACKGROUND OF THE NEW PLANT
The present invention comprises a new and distinct cultivar of Calibrachoa, botanically known as Calibrachoa sp., and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Cal Corink’. The new cultivar originated from a hybridization made in November 2002 in Gilroy, Calif. The female parent was the proprietary light-orange flowered Calibrachoa plant ‘111’ (unpatented), while the male parent was the proprietary Calibrachoa plant ‘144’ (unpatented) having cherry-red flowers. The seeds produced by the hybridization were sown in January 2003 in Gilroy, Calif. A single plant selection was chosen for further evaluation and for asexual propagation in summer 2003 in Gilroy, Calif.
The new cultivar was created in 2003 in Gilroy, Calif. and has been asexually reproduced repeatedly by vegetative cuttings and tissue culture in Gilroy, Calif. over a two-year period. ‘Cal Corink’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The present invention has been found to retain its distinctive characteristics through successive asexual propagations.
Plant Breeder's Rights for this cultivar were applied for in Canada on Jul. 19, 2005, in Switzerland on Sep. 16, 2005 and with the European Union on Sep. 28, 2005.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of this new cultivar when grown under normal horticultural practices in Gilroy, Calif. and Hillscheid, Germany.
    • 1. Medium to large, coral-pink flowers with red markings;
    • 2. Medium-green foliage with small, lanceolate leaves;
    • 3. A medium to larger size, moderately vigorous, round, bushy, and moderately tight plant habit;
    • 4. An initially spreading to later prostrate or trailing habit; and
    • 5. An early and continuous flowering response.
DESCRIPTION OF PHOTOGRAPHS
This new Calibrachoa plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs which show overall plant habit including blooms, buds, and foliage of the plant; the colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures. The photographs are of a whole plant grown in a greenhouse in Hillscheid, Germany, in May of 2005.
FIG. 1 shows the overall plant habit, including blooms, buds and foliage of a 25-week old plant.
FIG. 2 shows a close-up of the mature inflorescences of an 11-week old plant.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW CULTIVAR
The following detailed description sets forth the distinctive characteristics of ‘Cal Corink’. The data which define these characteristics were collected from asexual reproductions carried out in Hillscheid, Germany. The plant history was taken on 6-week old unpinched plants which were planted as rooted cuttings in 12-cm pots in mid-July 2005, and then grown in a greenhouse. Observations were made when the plants were in full flower in August 2005. Color readings were taken under natural light in the greenhouse. Color references are primarily to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.) (2001).
