Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Lagerstroemia plant named ‘PIILAG-IV’, characterized by its upright growth habit, dark maroon-purple foliage, red flower buds opening to white flowers, and resistance to powdery mildew and Cercospora leaf spot.

Description

Genus and species of plant claimed: Lagerstroemia L.
Variety denomination: ‘PIILAG-IV’.
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-IV’. ‘PIILAG-IV’ is grown primarily as an ornamental for landscape use and for use as a potted plant.
‘PIILAG-IV’ originated in 2010 from open-pollinated seed of Lagerstroemia ‘Chocolate Mocha’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 21,540) growing in Watkinsville, Ga. The cultivar ‘PIILAG-IV’ originated and was selected in a cultivated environment in Watkinsville, Ga. from the progeny of this open-pollination by continued evaluation for growth habit and foliage and flower characteristics.
Asexual reproduction of ‘PIILAG-IV’ by stem cuttings in Watkinsville, Ga. since 2011 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-IV’ 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-IV’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘PIILAG-IV’ as a new and distinct cultivar:
    • 1. Upright growth habit;
    • 2. Dark maroon-purple foliage;
    • 3. Red flower buds opening to white flowers;
    • 4. Resistance to powdery mildew and Cercospora leaf spot.
Plants of ‘PIILAG-IV’ differ from plants of the parent, ‘Chocolate Mocha’, primarily in foliage and flower color. Plants of ‘PIILAG-IV’ have dark maroon-purple foliage and white flowers, whereas plants of ‘Chocolate Mocha’ have dark brown/red-purple foliage and pink flowers.
Plants of ‘PIILAG-IV’ can be compared to plants of Lagerstroemia ‘White Chocolate’ (unpatented) but differ in growth habit and foliage color. Plants of ‘PIILAG-IV’ have an upright growth habit and dark maroon-purple foliage, whereas plants of ‘White Chocolate’ have a rounded growth habit and reddish purple new growth that matures to purplish green.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The accompanying color photographs illustrate the flower and foliage characteristics and the overall appearance of ‘PIILAG-IV’, 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 plant of ‘PIILAG-IV’ planted in the ground.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of the flowers of ‘PIILAG-IV’.
FIG. 3 illustrates a close-up view of the foliage of ‘PIILAG-IV’.
