Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Distylium plant named ‘Vintage Jade’, characterized by its compact, layered, mounding and spreading growth habit, light green new growth, dark green mature foliage, and reddish maroon flowers.

Description

Genus and species of plant claimed: Distylium sp. hybrid.

Variety denomination: ‘Vintage Jade’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Distylium plant, botanically known as Distylium sp. hybrid, a member of the Hamamelidaceae, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Vintage Jade’.

‘Vintage Jade’ originated as an open-pollinated seedling from seed collected from a Distylium sp. hybrid (Distylium myricoides×D. racemosum) growing in Watkinsville, Ga. ‘Vintage Jade’ was selected in the summer of 2006 by the inventor in a cultivated environment in Dearing, Ga.

Asexual reproduction of ‘Vintage Jade’ by stem cuttings since 2006 has shown that all the unique features of ‘Vintage Jade’, as herein described, are stable and reproduced true-to-type through successive generations of such asexual propagation.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new cultivar ‘Vintage Jade’ have not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with changes in light, temperature, soil and rainfall without, however, any variance in genotype.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be unique characteristics of ‘Vintage Jade’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Vintage Jade’ as a new and distinct cultivar: 1. Compact, layered, mounding and spreading growth habit; 3. Light green new growth; 3. Dark green mature foliage; and 4. Reddish maroon flowers.

Plants of ‘Vintage Jade’ differ from plants of the parent, Distylium sp. hybrid, primarily in growth habit, foliage color, and cold hardiness, as plants of ‘Vintage Jade’ have a smaller, more compact, mounding and spreading growth habit, large lustrous dark green mature foliage, and increased cold hardiness, whereas plants of the parent have a larger, less compact, upright, spreading growth habit, smaller medium green foliage, and are less cold hardy.

Plants of the new Distylium ‘Vintage Jade’ can be compared to plants of the cultivar ‘PIIDIST-I’ (U.S. Plant patent application Ser. No. 13/068,262), which is a sibling that originated from the same open-pollination. ‘Vintage Jade’ has a has a compact, layered, mounding and spreading growth habit, light green new growth, dark green mature foliage, and reddish maroon flowers, whereas ‘PIIDIST-I’ has a compact, upright-spreading growth habit, yellow-green new growth, dark green mature foliage, and reddish purple flowers.

Plants of the new Distylium ‘Vintage Jade’ can be compared to plants of the cultivar ‘PIIDIST-II’ (U.S. Plant patent application Ser. No. 13/068,251), which is a sibling that originated from the same open-pollination. ‘Vintage Jade’ has a compact, layered, mounding and spreading growth habit, light green new growth, dark green mature foliage, and reddish maroon flowers, whereas ‘PIIDIST-II’ has a compact, spreading growth habit, maroon-purple new growth, dark blue-green mature foliage, and reddish maroon flowers.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

The accompanying color photographs illustrate the flower and foliage characteristics and the overall appearance of ‘Vintage Jade’, showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in color 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 ‘Vintage Jade’.

FIG. 1 illustrates the overall appearance and growth habit of ‘Vintage Jade’.

FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of the new growth and mature foliage of ‘Vintage Jade’.

FIG. 3 illustrates a close-up view of the flowers of ‘Vintage Jade’.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

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.
