Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Lagerstroemia plant named ‘PIILAG-I’, characterized by its dwarf, rounded growth habit that is maintained over time without shoot reversions, reddish new growth and dark green foliage in summer, white flowers, and resistance to powdery mildew and Cercospora leaf spot.

Description

Genus and species of plant claimed: Lagerstroemia L.
Variety denomination: ‘PIILAG-I’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Lagerstroemia plant, botanically known as Lagerstroemia L., commonly known as crapemyrtle, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘PIILAG-I’.
The new Lagerstroemia plant originated from an open-pollination of Lagerstroemia ‘Gamad V’ (U.S. Pat. No. 17,411) in 1999-2000. The cultivar ‘PIILAG-I’ originated and was discovered in a cultivated environment in Dearing, Ga.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by stem cuttings in Watkinsville, Ga. for three years has shown that all the unique features of this new Lagerstroemia, 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 ‘PIILAG-I’ 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 ‘PIILAG-I’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘PIILAG-I’ as a new and distinct cultivar: 1. Dwarf, rounded growth habit that is maintained over time without shoot reversions; 2. Reddish new growth and dark green foliage in summer; 3. White flowers; 4. Resistance to powdery mildew and Cercospora leaf spot.
Plants of the new Lagerstroemia ‘PIILAG-I’ differ from plants of the parent, ‘Gamad V’, primarily in flower color and emerging foliage color. Plants of ‘Gamad V’ have pink flowers and foliage that emerges yellow-green, whereas plants of ‘PIILAG-I’ have white flowers and foliage that emerges reddish green.
Plants of the new Lagerstroemia can be compared to plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’ U.S. Plant Pat. No. 17,171. However, in side-by-side comparisons conducted in Watkinsville, Ga., plants of the new Lagerstroemia differed from plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’ in the following characteristics: 1. Plants of the new Lagerstroemia were consistently dwarf and did not produce reversion shoots, whereas plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’ would frequently produce reversion shoots and outgrow their original dwarf habit; 2. Plants of the new Lagerstroemia produced more inflorescences per plant than similar sized plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’; 3. Plants of the new Lagerstroemia were more vigorous, produced a saleable plant faster, and were more uniform in habit than plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’; 4. Plants of the new Lagerstroemia were more resistant to Cercospora leaf spot than plants of the cultivar ‘Gamad III’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The accompanying color photographs illustrate the flower and foliage characteristics and the overall appearance of the new Lagerstroemia, 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 the new Lagerstroemia.
FIG. 1 illustrates the overall appearance of a mature plant of ‘PIILAG-I’.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of the inflorescences of ‘PIILAG-I’.
FIG. 3 illustrates a close-up view of the new growth of ‘PIILAG-I’.
FIG. 4 illustrates a comparison of ‘PIILAG-I’ (center) to ‘Gamad III’ with reversions (left and right), respectively.
