Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Buddleia plant named ‘PIIBD-III’, characterized by its compact, rounded to upright growth habit, dark gray-green foliage, violet, deliciously sweet fragrant flowers with an orange center, and long flowering season, with flowers produced from spring to the first frost.

Description

Genus and species of plant claimed: Buddleia hybrid Franch.
Variety denomination: ‘PIIBD-III’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Buddleia plant, botanically known as Buddleia hybrid Franch., commonly known as butterfly-bush, and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘PIIBD-III’. ‘PIIBD-III’ is grown primarily as an ornamental for landscape use and for use as a potted plant.
‘PIIBD-III’ originated from an open-pollination of the cultivar ‘Miss Ruby’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 19,950) growing in Watkinsville, Ga. in 2010. The cultivar ‘PIIBD-III’ originated and was selected in a cultivated environment in Watkinsville, Ga. from the progeny of this open-pollination by continued evaluation for growth habit, foliage and flower characteristics.
Asexual reproduction of ‘PIIBD-III’ by stem cuttings in Watkinsville, Ga. since 2011 has shown that all the unique features of this new Buddleia, 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 ‘PIIBD-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 observed and represent the characteristics of the new cultivar. In combination these characteristics distinguish ‘PIIBD-III’ from all other varieties in commerce known to the inventor.
    • 1. Compact, rounded to upright growth habit;
    • 2. Dark gray-green foliage;
    • 3. Violet, deliciously sweet fragrant flowers with an orange center;
    • 4. Long flowering season, with flowers produced from spring to the first frost.
‘PIIBD-III’ is distinguished from its female parent, ‘Miss Ruby’ (U.S. Plant Pat. No. 19,950), by its foliage and flower color. ‘PIIBD-III’ has violet flower color and dark gray-green foliage, whereas ‘Miss Ruby’ has reddish pink flower color and dark green leaves.
‘PIIBD-III’ can be compared to ‘Empire Blue’ (Not Patented), but differs in the following characteristics. ‘PIIBD-III’ has smaller foliage, darker violet flower color and compact habit, whereas ‘Empire Blue’ has larger foliage, violet-blue flower color and larger, open, splaying habit.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
The accompanying color photographs illustrate the flower and foliage characteristics and the overall appearance of ‘PIIBD-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 the new Buddleia.
FIG. 1 illustrates the overall appearance of a three-year-old plant of ‘PIIBD-III’ planted in the ground.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of the inflorescences of ‘PIIBD-III’.
FIG. 3 illustrates the upper surface of a leaf of ‘PIIBD-III’.
FIG. 4 illustrates the underside of a leaf of ‘PIIBD-III’.
