Abstract

‘UF12-82-3’ is a new coleus plant distinguished by having a combination of novel mounded growth habit, excellent heat tolerance, and lance-shaped leaves consistently colored deep maroon with bright green margins that is significantly different than other coleus plants.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species of the plant claimed: Solenostemon scutellarioides.

Cultivar denomination: ‘UF12-82-3’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of coleus plant named ‘UF12-82-3’. ‘UF12-82-3’ originated from an open pollination conducted in May-November 2011 in Gainesville, Fla. between the female coleus plant ‘UF11-73-8’ (unpatented) and an unknown male coleus plant. A single seedling was chosen in May 2012 for further asexual propagation in Gainesville, Fla. (see FIG. 1 for pedigree).

‘UF12-82-3’ has been reproduced asexually for over one year through vegetative cuttings and has been found to retain its distinctive characteristics through successive asexual propagations. ‘UF12-82-3’ was first propagated asexually by meristem tip cuttings in May, 2012 in Gainesville, Fla., and has remained true-to-type since that time.

‘UF12-82-3’ has not been made publicly available more than one year prior to the filing date of this application.

When ‘UF12-82-3’ is compared to the female parent ‘UF11-73-8’, both plants have lance-shaped leaves, however ‘UF12-82-3’ leaves are deeper maroon in color, while ‘UF11-73-8’ leaves are more orange-red with lemon yellow margins. In addition, ‘UF12-82-3’ has a more vigorous, lateral, and spreading growth form than ‘UF11-73-8’.

When ‘UF12-82-3’ is compared to the commercial cultivar ‘UF08-19-10’ (U.S. patent application Ser. No. 14/120,608), both plants have lance-shaped leaves and a well-branched, mounded habit, however ‘UF08-19-10’ has a red streak through the mid-vein of the leaves, progressing to maroon, then emerald green at the leaf margin, while ‘UF12-82-3’ does not have a red streak through the mid-vein.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of ‘UF12-82-3’ when grown under normal horticultural practices in Gainesville, Fla. ‘UF12-82-3’ has a combination of novel mounded growth habit, excellent heat tolerance, and lance-shaped leaves consistently colored deep maroon with bright green margins that is significantly different than other coleus plants. It has superior stability in foliage color in both sun and shade conditions, maintaining stable color in all conditions. It has a vigorous but compact spreading growth habit with excellent lateral branching when grown as a stock plant, thus providing ample vegetative propagules for producers. This plant is desirable for long-season performance in the landscape.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS

This new coleus plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs, which show the plant's form and foliage.

The colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures.

FIGS. 2 and 3 were taken from twelve-week old plants pinched once at four weeks after stick and grown in March-May, 2014 in a glass greenhouse in Gainesville, Fla.

FIG. 1—shows the pedigree of the claimed plant.

FIG. 2—shows the growth habit, form, and foliage of the claimed plant.

FIG. 3—shows a close-up of the foliage.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The following detailed description sets forth the distinctive characteristics of ‘UF12-82-3’. The detailed description was obtained using twelve-week old plants grown in March-May, 2014 in a glass greenhouse in Gainesville, Fla. The plants were pinched 4 weeks after cuttings were rooted, then grown in 1-gallon pots for approximately 8 weeks. Color references are to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.), 2007 5th Edition.

Impatiens Necrotic Spot Virus (Bunyaviridae) has also been observed in plants confined in greenhouses with mixed crops (peppers) infected with Western flower thrips (Frankliniella occidentalis). The most common pathogen of this species in the US is downy mildew (Peronospora lamii). This pathogen has been observed in stock materials grown closely together in cooler growing seasons.
