Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Veronica plant named ‘Allvglove’, characterized by its upright plant habit; freely flowering habit; dense inflorescences with numerous purple violet-colored flowers; early flowering habit and long flowering period; and suitability as a garden or container plant.

Description

Botanical designation: Veronica longifolia×Veronica spicata.
Cultivar denomination: ‘ALLVGLOVE’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Veronica plant, botanically known as Veronica longifolia×Veronica spicata and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Allvglove’.
The new Veronica plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Rijswijk, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new compact and attractive Veronica plants with good garden performance.
The new Veronica plant originated from a cross-pollination of Veronica longifolia ‘Alllove’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 21,478, as the female, or seed, parent with Veronica longifolia ‘Alllord’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,294, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Veronica plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled environment in Rijswijk, The Netherlands on Jun. 12, 2015.
Asexual reproduction of the new Veronica plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled environment in Rijswijk, The Netherlands, since July, 2015 has shown that the unique features of this new Veronica plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Veronica 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 ‘Allvglove’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Allvglove’ as a new and distinct Veronica plant:
    • 1. Upright plant habit.
    • 2. Freely flowering habit.
    • 3. Dense inflorescences with numerous purple violet-colored flowers.
    • 4. Long flowering period.
    • 5. Suitable as a garden or container plant.
Plants of the new Veronica differ primarily from plants of the female parent, ‘Alllove’, in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Veronica and ‘Alllove’ differ in flower color as plants of ‘Alllove’ have intense red purple-colored flowers.
    • 2. Flowers of plants of the new Veronica are more slender than flowers of ‘Alllove’.
Plants of the new Veronica differ primarily from plants of the male parent, ‘Alllord’, in flower color as plants of ‘Alllord’ have blue-colored flowers.
Plants of the new Veronica can be compared to plants of Veronica longifolia ‘Allsurprise’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Rijswijk, The Netherlands, plants of the new Veronica differ primarily from plants of ‘Allsurprise’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Inflorescences of plants of the new Veronica are symmetrical whereas inflorescences of ‘Allsurprise’ are deformed.
    • 2. Plants of the new Veronica and ‘Allsurprise’ differ in flower color as plants of ‘Allsurprise’ have dark blue-colored flowers.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the Veronica 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 Veronica plant.
The photograph on the first sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Allvglove’.
The photograph at the top of the second sheet is a close-up view of typical inflorescences of ‘Allvglove’.
The photograph at the bottom of the second sheet is a close-up view of the upper surface of a typical leaf of ‘Allvglove’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
Plants used for the aforementioned photographs and following description were grown during the summer in ground beds in an outdoor nursery in Rijswijk, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial Veronica production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 15° C. to 30° C. and night temperatures ranged from 6° C. to 18° C. Plants were four months old when the photographs and the 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.
