Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Celosia plant named ‘Zancelpi’, characterized by its upright and compact plant habit; freely branching habit; freely flowering habit; red-colored flowers arranged on dense crested spikes; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical description: Celosia argentea.

Cultivar denomination: ‘Zancelpi’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Celosia, botanically known as Celosia argentea and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Zancelpi’.

The new Celosia is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Hillegom, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new uniform and compact Celosia cultivars with attractive flower coloration.

The new Celosia originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor in 2000 in Hillegom, The Netherlands of a proprietary selection of Celosia hybrida identified as code number C3, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with the Celosia argentea cultivar Venessa, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Celosia was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled environment in Hillegom, The Netherlands in 2001.

Asexual reproduction of the new Celosia by cuttings in a controlled environment in Rijsenhout, The Netherlands since 2001, has shown that the unique features of this new Celosia are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The cultivar Zancelpi has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment and cultural practices 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 ‘Zancelpi’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Zancelpi’ as a new and distinct cultivar of Celosia:

    • 1. Upright and compact plant habit.
    • 2. Freely branching habit.
    • 3. Freely flowering habit.
    • 4. Red purple-colored flowers arranged on crested spikes.
    • 5. Good garden performance.

Plants of the new Celosia differ from plants of the parents primarily in flower color and plant uniformity.

Plants of the new Celosia can be compared to plants of the cultivar Bombay Purple, not patented. Plants of the new Celosia and the cultivar Bombay Purple differ primarily in flower color as plants of the new Celosia had lighter red purple-colored flowers than plants of the cultivar Bombay Purple. In addition, plants of the cultivar Bombay Purple are typically grown as cut flowers.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Celosia, 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 Celosia.

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

The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of typical leaves and inflorescences of ‘Zancelpi’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photograph and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown during the autumn in Rijsenhout, The Netherlands in containers and under commercial practice in a glass-covered greenhouse with day and night temperatures ranging from 20° C. to 22° C. Plants were pinched one time. Plants had been growing for about four months when the photographs and description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2001 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
