Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Distylium plant named ‘PIIDIST-III’, characterized by its compact, rounded to spreading growth habit, bronze-purple new growth, dark bluish green mature foliage, and reddish maroon flowers.

Description

Genus and species of plant claimed: Distylium sp. hybrid.
Variety denomination: ‘PIIDIST-III’.
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 ‘PIIDIST-III’. ‘PIIDIST-III’ is grown primarily as an ornamental for landscape use and for use as a potted plant.
‘PIIDIST-III’ originated in 2008 as an open-pollinated seedling from bulk seed collected from several unnamed and unpatented selections of Distylium sp. hybrids as part of a breeding program in Watkinsville, Ga. Due to the bulk seed collection, the exact parents are unknown. ‘PIIDIST-III’ originated and was selected by the inventor in a cultivated environment in Watkinsville, Ga. from the progeny of this open-pollination by continued evaluation for growth habit and foliage characteristics.
Asexual reproduction of ‘PIIDIST-III’ by stem cuttings in Watkinsville, Ga. since 2010 has shown that all the unique features of ‘PIIDIST-III’, 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 ‘PIIDIST-III’ 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 ‘PIIDIST-III’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘PIIDIST-III’ as a new and distinct cultivar: 1. Compact, rounded to spreading growth habit; 2. Bronze-purple new growth; 3. Dark bluish green mature foliage; and 4. Reddish maroon flowers.
Plants of the new Distylium ‘PIIDIST-III’ can be compared to plants of the cultivar ‘PIIDIST-II’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 24,409), but differ in growth habit and foliage color. ‘PIIDIST-III’ has a compact, rounded to spreading growth habit and bronze-purple new growth that matures to bluish green, whereas ‘PIIDIST-III’ has a compact, spreading growth habit and maroon-purple new growth that matures to darker blue-green.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The accompanying color photographs illustrate the flower and foliage characteristics and the overall appearance of ‘PIIDIST-III’, 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 ‘PIIDIST-III’.
FIG. 1 illustrates the overall appearance and growth habit of a mature plant of ‘PIIDIST-III’ planted in the ground.
FIG. 2 illustrates new growth and mature foliage of a plant of ‘PIIDIST-III’ growing in a container.
FIG. 3 illustrates a close-up view of the new growth of ‘PIIDIST-III’.
DETAILED DESCRIPTION
In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2007 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. Plants used for the description were approximately 2-years-old and were grown in 11.8 L containers under outdoor conditions in Watkinsville, Ga.
