Abstract

A portulaca plant particularly distinguished by having yellow flowers, long flower blooming period and a dense, compact, and mounding plant growth habit, is disclosed.

Description

Genus and species: Portulaca oleracea.
Variety denomination: ‘SAKPOR012’.
BACKGROUND OF THE NEW PLANT
The present invention comprises a new and distinct variety of portulaca plant, botanically known as Portulaca oleracea, and referred to by the variety name ‘SAKPOR012’.
‘SAKPOR012’ originated from a hybridization made in October 2007 in Kakegawa, Japan. The female parent was an unpatented proprietary Portulaca breeding line named ‘Mo04-21A-2A’ which had a yellow flower color and a domed plant growth habit. The male parent was an unpatented proprietary Portulaca breeding line named ‘6Bu-21-V4’, characterized by its scarlet flower color and semi-mounding upright plant growth habit.
In October 2007, ‘Mo04-21A-2A’ and ‘6Bu-21-V4’ were crossed and some F1 seeds were obtained. In May 2008, the F1 seed was sown in the greenhouse, and cultivated. In August 2008, four plants were selected from the F1 group. In October 2008, F2 seeds were harvested after crossing within the four plants. The plants were evaluated, and plant line ‘K2012-179’ was selected for its yellow flower color, long flower blooming period and domed plant growth habit.
In March 2010, line ‘K2012-179’ was vegetatively propagated and cultivated. In August 2010, the breeder confirmed that line ‘K2012-179’ was fixed and stable. The line ‘K2012-179’ was propagated and cultivated again from 2011 to 2014 to reconfirm the lines' stability. The line was subsequently named ‘SAKPOR012’ and its unique characteristics were found to reproduce true to type in successive generations of asexual propagation.
SUMMARY
The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of this new variety when grown under normal horticultural practices in Salinas, Calif.
    • 1. Yellow flower color;
    • 2. Long flower blooming period; and
    • 3. A dense, compact, and mounding plant growth habit.
CROSS REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATIONS
Plant Breeder's Rights for ‘SAKPOR012’ were applied for in Japan on Sep. 9, 2014 (Application number 29525). ‘SAKPOR012’ has not been made publicly available or sold more than one year prior to the filing date of this application.
DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
This portulaca plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs which show the plant's overall plant habit including form, foliage, and flowers. The photographs are of a three month old plant grown in Salinas, Calif. under greenhouse conditions. The colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures.

FIG. 2 shows a close-up of the mature inflorescence of the plant.
DESCRIPTION OF THE NEW VARIETY
The following detailed descriptions set forth the distinctive characteristics of ‘SAKPOR012’. The data which define these characteristics were collected from three month old plants grown in Salinas, Calif. Color references are to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.), 4th edition (2001).
  • Classification:
      • Family.—Portulacaceae.
      • Botanical.—Portulaca oleracea.
      • Common.—Purslane.
      • Designation.—‘SAKPOR012’.
  • Parentage:
      • Female parent.—‘Mo04-21A-2A’ (unpatented).
      • Male parent.—‘6Bu-21-V4’ (unpatented).
  • Growth:
      • Time to produce a rooted cutting.—About 2 weeks.
      • Environmental conditions for plant growth.—The terminal 1.0 to 1.5 inches of an actively growing stem was excised. The vegetative cuttings were propagated in five to six weeks. The base of the cuttings were dipped for 1 to 2 seconds in a 1:9 solution of Dip 'N Grow (1 solution:9 water) root inducing solution immediately prior to sticking into the cell trays. Cuttings were stuck into plastic cell trays having 98 cells, and containing a moistened peat moss-based growing medium. The cuttings were misted with water from overhead for 10 seconds every 30 minutes until sufficient roots were formed. Rooted cuttings were transplanted and grown in 20 cm diameter plastic pots in a glass greenhouse located in Salinas, Calif. Pots contained a peat moss-based growing medium. Soluble fertilizer containing 20% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus and 20% potassium was applied once a day or every other day by overhead irrigation. Pots were top-dressed with a dry, slow release fertilizer containing 20% nitrogen, 10% phosphorus and 18% potassium. The typical average air temperature was 24° C.
