Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Poinsettia plant named ‘Dueavared’, characterized by its compact, upright and outwardly spreading plant habit; freely branching habit; dark green and light green variegated leaves; early flowering habit; inflorescences with red-colored flower bracts; and excellent post-production longevity.

Description

Botanical designation: Euphorbia pulcherrima.
Cultivar denomination: ‘Dueavared’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Poinsettia plant, botanically known as Euphorbia pulcherrima Willd., and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Dueavared’.
The new Poinsettia a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Rheinberg, Germany. The objective of the breeding program is to create new Poinsettia cultivars having variegated leaves, attractive floral bract coloration and excellent post-production longevity.
The new Poinsettia is a naturally-occurring branch mutation of a proprietary selection of Euphorbia pulcherrima Willd. identified as code number 05-005-18, not patented. The cultivar Dueavared was discovered and selected by the Inventor from within a population of plants of the parent selection in a controlled environment in Rheinberg, Germany in December, 2004.
Asexual reproduction of the new Poinsettia by terminal vegetative cuttings in a controlled environment in Rheinberg, Germany since December, 2004, has shown that the unique features of this new Poinsettia are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations of asexual reproduction.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar Dueavared 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 ‘Dueavared’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Dueavared’ as a new and distinct cultivar of Poinsettia:
    • 1. Compact, upright and outwardly spreading plant habit.
    • 2. Freely branching habit.
    • 3. Dark green and light green variegated leaves.
    • 4. Early flowering habit.
    • 5. Inflorescences with red-colored flower bracts.
    • 6. Excellent post-production longevity.
In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Rheinberg, Germany, plants of the new Poinsettia differed from plants of the parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Poinsettia had variegated leaves whereas plants of the parent selection did not have variegated leaves.
    • 2. Plants of the new Poinsettia and the parent selection differed in flower bract shape and coloration.
Plants of the new Poinsettia can be compared to plants of the Poinsettia cultivar Fiscor, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 9,364. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Rheinberg, Germany, plants of the new Poinsettia differed from plants of the cultivar Fiscor in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Pionsettia were more compact, but broader than plants of the cultivar Fiscor.
    • 2. Plants of the new Poinsettia had smaller leaves than plants of the cultivar Fiscor.
    • 3. Plants of the new Poinsettia had variegated leaves whereas plants of the cultivar Fiscor had solid green-colored leaves.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new Poinsettia. These photograph shows the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Poinsettia. The photograph comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Dueavared’ grown in a container.
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. The aforementioned photograph and following observations and measurements describe plants grown in Rheinberg, Germany during the winter in a glass-covered greenhouse and under conditions and practices which approximate those generally used in commercial Poinsettia production. During the production of the plants, day and night temperatures averaged 22° C. and light levels were about 4,500 lux. Measurements and numerical values represent averages for typical flowering plants. Single plants were grown in 13-cm containers and pinched one time. Plants were about 16 weeks old when the photographs and the detailed description were taken.
