Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Lobelia plant named ‘Sunlobe Toreho’, characterized by its outwardly spreading plant habit; vigorous growth habit; freely branching habit; dense and bushy plant form; freely flowering habit; relatively large white-colored flowers; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Lobelia erinus.
Cultivar denomination: ‘SUNLOBE TOREHO’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Lobelia plant, botanically known as Lobelia erinus and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Sunlobe Toreho’.
The new Lobelia plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan. The objective of the breeding program is to create new outwardly spreading, freely-branching and bushy Lobelia plants with large attractive flowers and good garden performance.
The new Lobelia plant originated from an open-pollination in May, 2007 of a proprietary selection of Lobelia erinus identified as code named ANB-LK, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown selection of Lobelia erinus as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Lobelia plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the stated open-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan in June, 2008.
Asexual reproduction of the Lobelia plant by vegetative cuttings in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan since April, 2009 has shown that the unique features of this new Lobelia plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Lobelia have not been observed under all possible combinations of environmental conditions and cultural practices. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environmental conditions such as temperature 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 ‘Sunlobe Toreho’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Sunlobe Toreho’ as a new and distinct Lobelia plant:
    • 1. Outwardly spreading plant habit.
    • 2. Vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely branching habit; dense and bushy plant form.
    • 4. Freely flowering habit.
    • 5. Relatively large white-colored flowers.
    • 6. Good garden performance.
Plants of the new Lobelia differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in flower color as plants of the female parent selection have sky blue-colored flowers with white-colored centers.
Plants of the new Lobelia can be compared to plants of Lobelia erinus ‘Lobwhi’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 25,205. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan, plants of the new Lobelia differed from plants of ‘Lobwhi’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Lobelia were more outwardly spreading than plants of ‘Lobwhi’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lobelia had larger leaves than plants of ‘Lobwhi’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Lobelia had larger flowers than plants of ‘Lobwhi’.
    • 4. Plants of the new Lobelia had longer pedicels than plants of ‘Lobwhi’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Lobelia plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored 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 actual colors of the new Lobelia plant.
The photograph at the top of the sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Sunlobe Toreho’ grown in a container.
The photograph at the bottom of the sheet is a close-up view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Sunlobe Toreho’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
Plants used for the aforementioned photographs and following description were grown in 15-cm containers in an outdoor nursery in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan and under cultural practices typical of commercial Lobelia production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures averaged 23° C. and night temperatures averaged 13° C. Plants were four months old when the photographs and description were taken. 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.
