Abstract

A new cultivar of Physocarpus plant named ‘Lady in Red’ that is characterized by freely branching habit, red foliage and pink flowers. In combination these traits set ‘Lady in Red’ apart from all other existing varieties of Physocarpus known to the inventor.

Description

Genus: Physocarpus. Species: opulifolius.
Denomination: ‘Lady in Red’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Physocarpus, or ninebark, that is grown for use as an ornamental landscape plant. It is known botanically as Physocarpus opulifolius and will be referred to hereinafter by the cultivar name ‘Lady in Red’.
‘Lady in Red’ was discovered at the inventor's nursery in Norfolk, United Kingdom, in a batch of seedlings grown from seed collected by the inventor from Physocarpus opulifolius cultivar ‘Monlo’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 11,211) and sown in 2000.
‘Lady in Red’ was selected from the resulting population of seedlings or its distinguishing combination of red leaves and pink flowers. The closest cultivars known to the inventor are ‘Monlo’ and ‘Diable d'Or’ (unpatented), but both of those have creamy-white flowers. In addition, the emerging foliage of ‘Diable d'Or’ is amber in color compared to the red of ‘Lady in Red’.
Asexual reproduction of ‘Lady in Red’ was first accomplished by the inventor in 2001, at the inventor's nursery in Norfolk, United Kingdom. The method of asexual propagation used was stem cuttings. Since that time the characteristics of the new cultivar have been determined stable and to be reproduced true to type in successive generations of vegetative propagation.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following traits have been repeatedly observed and represent the characteristics of the new Physocarpus cultivar ‘Lady in Red’. These traits in combination distinguish this cultivar from all other commercial varieties known to the inventor. ‘Lady in Red’ has not been tested under all possible conditions and phenotypic differences may be observed with variations in environmental, climatic and cultural conditions without however any difference in genotype.
    • 1. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ exhibits a free branching shrubby growth habit.
    • 2. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ exhibits red foliage.
    • 3. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ exhibits pink flowers.
    • 4. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ is 2 m in overall height and 2 m in width in a 1.5-liter container.
    • 5. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ is deciduous.
    • 6. Physocarpus ‘Lady in Red’ blooms in mid-June.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The accompanying color drawings illustrate the overall appearance of the new Physocarpus variety ‘Lady in Red’ showing colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the drawings may differ from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description, which accurately describe the actual colors of the new variety ‘Lady in Red’.
The drawing labeled as FIG. 1 illustrates the entire plant in flower.
The drawing labeled as FIG. 2 illustrates the emerging foliage.
The drawing labeled as FIG. 3 illustrates a close up view of an inflorescence.
All drawings were made from 4 year old plants grown in open ground in Norfolk, England. No chemicals were used to treat the plants. All drawings were made using conventional techniques and although colors may appear different from actual colors due to light reflectance they are as accurate as possible by conventional photography.
BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PLANT
The following is a detailed description of the new cultivar ‘Lady in Red’. Data was collected from 2 year old plants grown out of doors in 1.5-liter containers in Norfolk, England. The color determinations are in accordance with the 2001 edition of The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society, London, England, except where general color terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. No chemicals were used to treat the plants. Growing conditions were typical to other Physocarpus.
