Abstract

A new cultivar of Coprosma plant named ‘Golden Star’ that is characterized by a compact habit and variegated yellow leaves with an irregular green center and orange margins.

Description

Botanical classification: Coprosma repens.
Variety denomination: ‘Golden Star’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Coprosma plant botanically known as Coprosma repens and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Golden Star’.
The new cultivar was discovered by the inventor in a cultivated area of Kihikihi, New Zealand in 2011. ‘Golden Star’ was discovered as a naturally occurring branch mutation of Coprosma ‘Evening Glow’ (not patented).
Asexual reproduction by tip cuttings of the new cultivar ‘Golden Star’ was first performed in 2013 in Kihikihi, New Zealand. Since that time, under careful observation, the unique characteristics of the new cultivar have been uniform, stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations of asexual reproduction.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following represent the distinguishing characteristics of the new Coprosma cultivar ‘Golden Star’.
    • 1. Coprosma ‘Golden Star’ exhibits a compact habit.
    • 2. Coprosma ‘Golden Star’ exhibits variegated yellow leaves with an irregular green center and orange margins.
The closest comparison cultivars are the parent plant Coprosma ‘Evening Glow’ (not patented) and ‘Ignite’ (not patented). The new cultivar ‘Golden Star’ is distinguishable from ‘Evening Glow’ by the following characteristics:
    • 1. ‘Golden Star’ has variegated yellow leaves with an irregular green center and orange margins. The leaves of ‘Evening Glow’ are green with yellow-green center blotches and red margins.
The new cultivar ‘Golden Star’ is distinguishable from ‘Ignite’ by the following characteristics:
    • 1. ‘Golden Star’ has variegated yellow leaves with an irregular green center and orange margins. The leaves of ‘Ignite’ are brown with green center blotches and red margins.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWING
The accompanying photograph illustrates the distinguishing traits of Coprosma ‘Golden Star’. The plant in the photograph shows an overall view of a 12 month old plant.
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.
BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION OF THE PLANT
The following is a detailed description of the new Coprosma cultivar named ‘Golden Star’. Data was collected in Cambridge, New Zealand from 12 month old outdoor grown plants in 2.5 liter containers. The time of year was Fall in the Southern Hemisphere and the average temperature range was 10 to 25 degrees Centigrade during the day and 5 to 12 degrees Centigrade at night. No photoperiodic treatments or growth retardants were used. Color determinations are in accordance with The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2001 edition, except where general color terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. The growing requirements are similar to the species. ‘Golden Star’ has not been tested under all possible conditions and phenotypic differences may be observed with variations in environmental, climatic, and cultural conditions, however, without any variance in genotype.
  • Botanical classification: Coprosma repens ‘Golden Star’.
  • Use: Ornamental perennial.
  • Parentage: ‘Golden Star’ is a naturally occurring branch mutation of Coprosma ‘Evening Glow’.
