Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant named ‘Duelanhavsunse’, characterized by its compact, upright and mounding plant habit; vigorous growth habit and rapid growth rate; freely branching growth habit; dense and bushy plant form; medium to large dark green-colored leaves; early and freely flowering habit; long flowering period; relatively large inflorescences with large flowers that are initially dark yellow orange in color becoming light red purple with development; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Lantana camara.

Cultivar denomination: ‘DUELANHAVSUNSE’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant, botanically known as Lantana camara and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Duelanhavsunse’.

The new Lantana plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Bellefonte, Pa. The objective of the breeding program is to create new compact, freely-branching Lantana plants with early and freely flowering habit and large attractive flowers.

The new Lantana plant originated from a self-pollination in August, 2013 in Bellefonte, Pa. of a proprietary selection of Lantana camara identified as code number G2X-19101-1, not patented. The new Lantana plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated self-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in Bellefonte, Pa. on Oct. 8, 2014.

Asexual reproduction of the new Lantana plant by terminal cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Bellefonte, Pa. since October, 2014 has shown that the unique features of this new Lantana plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Lantana 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 ‘Duelanhavsunse’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Duelanhavsunse’ as a new and distinct Lantana plant:

    • 1. Compact, upright and mounding plant habit.
    • 2. Vigorous growth habit and rapid growth rate.
    • 3. Freely branching growth habit; dense and bushy plant form.
    • 4. Medium to large dark green-colored leaves.
    • 5. Early and freely flowering habit.
    • 6. Long flowering period.
    • 7. Relatively large inflorescences with large flowers that are initially dark yellow orange in color becoming light red purple with development.
    • 8. Good garden performance.

Plants of the new Lantana can be compared to plants of the parent selection. Plants of the new Lantana differ primarily from plants of the parent selection in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Lantana are smaller and more compact than plants of the parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lantana are not as vigorous as plants of the parent selection.
    • 3. Plants of the new Lantana are more freely branching and denser than plants of the parent selection.
    • 4. Leaves of plants of the new Lantana are darker green in color than leaves of plants of the parent selection.
    • 5. Plants of the new Lantana and the parent selection differ in flower color as plants of the parent selection have flowers that are initially yellow in color becoming light red purple with development.

Plants of the new Lantana can be compared to plants of the Lantana camara ‘Bante Cheriasun’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 19,264. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Lantana differ from plants of ‘Bante Cheriasun’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Lantana are larger and more vigorous than plants of ‘Bante Cheriasun’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lantana flower earlier than plants of ‘Bante Cheriasun’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Lantana have slightly larger flowers than plants of ‘Bante Cheriasun’.
    • 4. Plants of the new Lantana and ‘Bante Cheriasun’ differ in flower color as developed flowers of plants of ‘Bante Cheriasun’ are darker red purple in color.

Plants of the new Lantana can be compared to plants of the Lantana camara ‘Balandrise’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 19,151. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Lantana differ from plants of ‘Balandrise’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Lantana are larger than plants of ‘Balandrise’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lantana flower earlier than plants of ‘Balandrise’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Lantana have slightly larger flowers than plants of ‘Balandrise’.
    • 4. Plants of the new Lantana and ‘Balandrise’ differ in flower color as developed flowers of plants of ‘Balandrise’ are darker red purple in color.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH

The accompanying colored photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new Lantana plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Lantana plant.

The photograph is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Duelanhavsunse’ grown in a container.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photograph and following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the winter in one-gallon containers in a glass-covered greenhouse in Bellefonte, Pa. and under commercial practices typical of commercial Lantana production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 15.5° C. to 24° C., night temperatures ranged from 12.8° C. to 21.1° C. and light levels ranged from 1 to more than 400 W/m2. Plants were four months old when the photograph and the description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, Fifth Edition 2007, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
