Abstract

A new and distinct Chamelaucium cultivar named ‘REY’ is disclosed, characterized by bright pink flowers with distinctive ciliate sepals. Foliage is lanceolate. The new variety is a Chamelaucium×Verticordia, normally producing cut flower stems, or as a garden or container plant.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Chamelaucium uncinatum×Verticordia grandis.
Variety denomination: ‘REY’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The new Chamelaucium×Verticordia cultivar is the product of a planned breeding program conducted by the inventor, Nitzan Nir, in Kfar Hess, Israel. The objective of the breeding program was to produce new varieties for ornamental commercial applications. The new variety was selected as a seedling from the breeding program at a commercial nursery in Kfar Hess, Israel.
The crossing resulting in this new variety was made in February of 2010. The seed parent is an unnamed Chamelaucium uncinatum. The pollen parent is an unnamed Verticordia grandis. The new variety was discovered in April of 2011 by the inventor in a group of seedlings resulting from previously mentioned crossing, in a commercial nursery in Kfar Hess, Israel.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar has been performed by terminal vegetative cuttings. This was first performed at a commercial nursery in Kfar Hess, Israel in April of 2012 and has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type in at least 4 successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar ‘REY’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, day length, 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 ‘REY’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘REY’ as a new and distinct Chamelaucium×Verticordia cultivar:
    • 1. Unique lanceolate foliage
    • 2. Bright pink petals
    • 3. Five lobed hypanthium
    • 4. Distinctive ciliate sepals
    • 5. Long pistil
PARENT COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ are similar to plants of the seed parent in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ differ in the following:
    • 1. Foliage shape; foliage of the new variety is lanceolate, foliage of the seed parent is needlelike.
    • 2. Petal color of the new variety is bright pink, petal color of the seed parent is white.
    • 3. The new variety has a larger sepal, with an incised margin, the seed parent has no incision in the sepal margin.
    • 4. Pistil length of the new variety is longer than the pistil of the seed parent.
    • 5. The new variety has a hypanthium with 5 definite lobes, the parent variety has a hypanthium without lobes.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ are similar to plants of the pollen parent in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ differ in the following:
    • 1. Foliage shape; foliage of the new variety is lanceolate, foliage of the pollen parent is round.
    • 2. Petal ,color of the new variety is bright pink, petal color of the pollen parent is red.
    • 3. Pistil length of the new variety is shorter than the pistil of the pollen parent.
    • 4. Sepals of the new variety are shorter, with a shorter marginal incision.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ are comparable to the variety Chamelaucium uncinatum ‘RotemWax’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 26,024. The two varieties are similar in some horticultural characteristics; however, the new variety ‘REY’ differs in the following:
    • 1. Foliage shape; foliage of the new variety is lanceolate, foliage of this comparator is needlelike.
    • 2. Petal color of the new variety is brighter pink than petal color of this comparator.
    • 3. The new variety has distinctive ciliate sepals, this comparator has sepals fused into a single structure, with an entire margin, with a single incision.
    • 4. The new variety has a hypanthium with 5 definite lobes, this comparator has a hypanthium without lobes.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘REY’ can also be compared to the unpatented Verticordia monadelpha. These plants are similar in some horticultural characteristics however, the new variety ‘REY’ differs in the following:
    • 1. Foliage shape; foliage of the new variety is lanceolate, foliage of this comparator is needlelike.
    • 2. Inflorescence type of the new variety is a terminal panicle, inflorescence of this comparator is corymbose.
    • 3. The comparator has longer cilia structures emerging from the sepals.
    • 4. Plants of the new variety are more upright and dense, compared to the globular, loose and spreading plant form of this comparator.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a close up of typical flowers and foliage of ‘REY’ at approximately 1 year of age.
FIG. 2 illustrates plants of the new variety.
The photographs were 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.
