Abstract

A new variety of Floribunda rose suitable for garden decoration, having flowers of clear lavender coloration.

Description

Classification: The present invention relates to a new Rosa hybrida plant.
Variety denomination: The new plant has the varietal denomination ‘WEKstameda’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
This invention relates to a new and distinct variety of Floribunda Rose. It has an undisseminated seedling of my creation as its seed parent with the following genetic origin {Stainless Steel×(Blueberry Hill×Stephen's Big Purple)}×Sunset Celebration and as its pollen parent the variety known as ‘WEKblunez’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,572).
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Among the features which distinguish the new variety from other presently available and commercial rose cultivars known to the inventor are the following combinations of characteristics: its very double flowers of clear lavender coloration, its excellent color stability throughout the life of the flower, its large clusters and its very abundant bloom. The plant has a bushy rounded growing habit, suitable for outdoor garden decoration.
Asexual reproduction of the new variety by budding as performed in Kern County and Pomona, Calif., shows that the foregoing and other distinguishing characteristics come true to form and are established and transmitted through succeeding asexual propagations. ‘WEKstameda’ may be asexually propagated by cuttings, budding and grafting. The budding and grafting successfully occurred on the plant/rootstock Rosa hybrida cv. Dr. Huey (not patented).
COMPARISON WITH PARENTS
The new rose may be distinguished from its seed parent, an undisseminated seedling of my creation by the following combination of characteristics: whereas ‘WEKstameda’ bears very double flowers (about 46 to 57 petals) of clear lavender coloration, the undisseminated seedling bears double flowers of light purple coloration with significantly lesser petalage (about 25 to 32 petals). The new variety has a bushy rounded medium height growing habit (about 130 to about 150 cm. in height), whereas the seed parent has a bushy upright significantly shorter growing habit (about 90 to about 100 cm. in height).
The new variety may be distinguished from its pollen parent, ‘WEKblunez’ by the following combination of characteristics: whereas ‘WEKstameda’ bears medium sized flowers (about 8.3 to about 9.1 cm. in diameter) of clear lavender coloration, ‘WEKblunez’ bears significantly larger flowers (about 10.0 to about 12.2 cm. in diameter) of orchid pink coloration. The flowers of the new variety have a slight citrus-like fragrance, whereas the flowers of the pollen parent have a strong old rose fragrance.
COMPARISON WITH THE CLOSEST COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE CULTIVAR
The new variety may be distinguished from its closest commercially available cultivar, ‘Angel Face’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 2,792) by the following combination of characteristics: whereas ‘WEKstameda’ bears very double flowers (about 46 to 57 petals) of clear lavender coloration, ‘Angel Face’ bears double flowers of clear medium lavender coloration blushed ruby with significantly lesser petalage (about 25 to 30 petals). The new variety has a bushy rounded medium height growing habit (about 130 to about 150 cm. in height), whereas the closest commercially available cultivar has a rounded compact significantly shorter growing habit (about 90 to about 120 cm. in height).
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF ILLUSTRATION
The accompanying photograph illustrates the new variety and shows the flowering thereof from bud to full bloom depicted in color as nearly correct as it is possible to make in a color illustration of the character. The branches used for the photograph came from 3 to 4 year-old rose plants of the new variety grown outdoors in Pomona, Calif. in the month of September. Throughout this specification, color references and/or values are based upon The Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society (1966) except where common terms of color definition are employed.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW VARIETY
The following description is of 3 to 4 year-old rose plants of the new variety grown outdoors in Pomona, Calif. in the month of September. Phenotypic expression may vary with environmental, cultural and climatic conditions, as well as differences in conditions of light and soil.
FLOWER
The new variety usually bears its flowers in clusters of three to five or more per stem. Flowers are borne in regular somewhat flat to rounded clusters on strong medium length stems (about 20 to about 34 cm.). Outdoors, the plant blooms very abundantly and nearly continuously during the growing season. The flowers have a slight citrus-like fragrance.
BUD
The peduncle is about 4.1 to about 5.2 cm. in length, of average caliper (about 2.5 to about 3.5 cm. in diameter), and usually erect. It is moderately rough, with few stipitate glands and some very small prickles. Peduncle color is between 146C and 144A.
Before the calyx breaks, the bud is about 1.5 to about 1.9 cm. in diameter at the widest point, about 2.0 to about 2.3 cm. in length, and ovoid to somewhat pointed in shape. The surface of the bud bears between 5 to 7 foliaceous appendages, very few stipitate glands and usually with slender entire foliaceous parts extending beyond the tip of the bud about ½ or more of its length. Bud color is between 144A and 146B.
The sepals are about 2.0 to about 2.3 cm. in length and about 0.7 to about 0.9 cm. in width at the widest point. The outer surface color of the sepal is between 144A and 146B. The outer surface of the sepal is very smooth and bears between 1 to 4 foliacious appendages with very few stipitate glands. The inner surface color of the sepal is near 146D. The inner surface of the sepal is covered with fine wooly tomentum; sepal margins are lined with many stipitate glands and some hairs.
The receptacle of the flower is of somewhat short to medium length (about 0.6 to about 0.7 cm.) and average in caliper (about 0.9 to about 1.2 cm. in diameter). The receptacle is urn-shaped in form. Its surface is very smooth with few hairs and with moderately thick fleshy walls. The receptacle color is between 144A and 146B.
As the petals open (after the calyx breaks), the bud is about 2.2 to about 2.5 cm. in diameter at the widest point, about 2.6 to about 3.0 cm. in length, and moderately ovoid to nearly globular in form. The color of the under surfaces of the newly opened petals is between 70C and 70D sometimes blushed with as dark as 71B at the very edge of the petal. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a somewhat small zone of near 1D. The color of the upper surfaces of the newly opened petals is between 78D and 70D. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a moderately large zone of near 1C.
BLOOM
When fully open, the bloom ranges from about 8.3 to about 9.1 cm. in diameter. Petalage is very double with about 46 to 57 petals and about 5 to 9 petaloids irregularly arranged. When partially open, the bloom form is moderately cupped to somewhat high centered, and the petals are somewhat tightly spiraled to cupped with petal edges somewhat rolled outward. When fully open, the bloom form is more cupped, and the petals are loosely cupped to moderately undulated with petal edges moderately rolled outward.
PETALS
The substance of the petals is moderately heavy and of medium thickness, with upper surfaces somewhat satiny and under surfaces slightly shiny to matte. The petals are about 3.8 to about 4.6 cm. in length and about 2.8 to about 3.6 cm. in width at the widest point. Petal margins are usually entire to sometimes moderately crenate mostly on the outermost petals.
The outer petals are somewhat broadly obovate in shape with rounded to sometimes moderately crenate apices.
The inner petals are moderately obovate to nearly oblanceolate in shape with rounded apices.
Petaloids are about 2.1 to about 2.4 cm. in length and about 0.8 to about 1.3 cm. in width at the widest point. Petaloids are irregularly shaped somewhat obovate to oblanceolate with rounded apices.
NEWLY OPENED FLOWER
The under surface color of the outer, intermediate and inner petals is between 75C and 73D. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a somewhat small zone of near 158C.
The upper surface color of the outer, intermediate and inner petals is between 75B and 73C. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a moderately large zone of near 2D.
The under and upper surface colors of the petaloids are similar in coloration to the upper and under surfaces of the intermediate and inner petals.
The general tonality of the newly opened flower is between 75B and 73C.
THREE-DAY-OLD FLOWER
The under surface color of the outer, intermediate and inner petals is between 75D and 73D. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a somewhat small zone of near 158D.
The upper surface color of the outer, intermediate and inner petals is between 75C and 73D. At the point where the petal attaches, there is a moderately large zone of near 155C.
