Abstract

A new and distinct Zantedeschia cultivar named ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ is disclosed, characterized by dark orange flowers, prolific flower production, green foliage spotted with white and a short plant height. The new variety is commercially suitable for indoor plant production.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Zantedeschia sprengeri.
Variety denomination: ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
This application claims priority benefit to European Union Plant Breeder's Rights application number 2012/1630 filed Jul. 23, 2012. The new cultivar is a product of a planned breeding program. The new variety originated from a cross pollination, made by the inventor in 2006, of a proprietary seed parent identified as ‘3434.34’ and a proprietary pollen parent identified as ‘04.877-1’, both Zantedeschia sprengeri.
The new variety was discovered and selected by the inventor, Anthonius Simon Johannes Kapiteijn, a citizen of the Netherlands, in 2008 in a group of seedlings resulting from the crossing. The new cultivar was found in a commercial greenhouse belonging to the inventor in Anna Paulowna, the Netherlands.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ was first performed by micropropagation at a commercial laboratory in Anna Palowna in the Netherlands in late 2009 or early 2010. Micropropagated plants were subsequently grown out to produce tubers. ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ has been reproduced by both micropropagation and tubers and has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, day length, 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 ‘CAPTAIN ODEON.’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ as a new and distinct Zantedeschia cultivar:
    • 1. Deep orange flowers.
    • 2. Prolific flower production.
    • 3. Short plant height.
    • 4. Green foliage with white spots.
PARENT COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ are similar to plants of the seed parent variety, in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar produce spathes which are orange, whereas the seed parent produces pink spathes.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ are similar to plants of the pollen parent variety, in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar produce orange spathes whereas the spathes of the pollen parent are red. Additionally, typical peduncle length of the new variety is shorter than typical peduncle length of the pollen parent.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ are similar to plants of the unpatented variety, Zantedeschia sprengeri ‘Captain Fuego’, unpatented in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar have a different leaf shape than ‘Captain Fuego’. Additionally, ‘Captain Odeon’ produces flowers and foliage of deeper coloration than ‘Captain Fuego’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color typical plants of ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ grown in a greenhouse in Anna Paulowna, the Netherlands. The plants are approximately 1 year old, shown growing in 15 cm pots. The photograph was taken using conventional techniques and although colors may appear different from actual colors due to light reflectance it is as accurate as possible by conventional photographic techniques.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2007 except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. The following observations and measurements describe ‘CAPTAIN ODEON’ plants grown in a climate controlled greenhouse in Anna Paulowna, the Netherlands. Temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 22° C. day to 12° C. to 16° C. at night. The following chemical treatments were used; GA 3 growth regulator at an unspecified amount during production. Before planting growth retardant, padobutrazol at a dose of 1 ppm was given. Measurements and numerical values represent averages of typical plant types.
