Abstract

A new and distinct Calibrachoa plant named ‘JGCAL09404’, characterized by its upright to outwardly spreading and mounding to eventually trailing plant habit; moderately vigorous to vigorous growth habit; freely branching habit; dense and bushy appearance; freely flowering habit; large dark violet and close to black-colored petals with yellow-colored centers; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Calibrachoa sp.

Cultivar denomination: ‘JGCAL09404’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Calibrachoa plant, botanically known as Calibrachoa sp. and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘JGCAL09404’.

The new Calibrachoa plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Bonsall, Calif. The objective of the breeding program is to create new uniform and freely-branching Calibrachoa plants with unique and attractive flower coloration, good garden performance and resistance to pathogens.

The new Calibrachoa plant originated from a cross-pollination conducted by the Inventor in Bonsall, Calif. on Sep. 11, 2013 of Calibrachoa sp. ‘Duealkomidbu’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 25,487, as the female, or seed, parent with a proprietary selection of Calibrachoa sp. identified as code number 11C110-02, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Calibrachoa plant was discovered and first selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in Bonsall, Calif. on Jul. 9, 2014.

Asexual reproduction of the new Calibrachoa plant by vegetative terminal cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Bonsall, Calif. since Jul. 15, 2014 has shown that the unique features of this new Calibrachoa plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Calibrachoa 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 ‘JGCAL09404’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘JGCAL09404’ as a new and distinct Calibrachoa plant:

    • 1. Upright to outwardly spreading and mounding to eventually trailing plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately vigorous to vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely branching habit; dense and bushy appearance.
    • 4. Freely flowering habit.
    • 5. Large dark violet and close to black-colored petals with yellow-colored centers.
    • 6. Good garden performance.

The new Calibrachoa plant can be compared to plants of the female parent, ‘Duealkomidbu’. Plants of the new Calibrachoa differ primarily from plants of ‘Duealkomidbu’ in flower size as plants of ‘Duealkomidbu’ have smaller flowers. In addition, plants of the new Calibrachoa root faster and are more resistant to root pathogens than plants of ‘Duealkomidbu’.

The new Calibrachoa plant can be compared to plants of the male parent selection. Plants of the new Calibrachoa differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in flower color as plants of the male parent selection have black, yellow and red-colored petals. In addition, plants of the new Calibrachoa have larger flowers, root faster and are more resistant to root pathogens than plants of the male parent selection.

Plants of the new Calibrachoa can be compared to plants of the Calibrachoa sp. ‘USCAL84704’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,231. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Calibrachoa differ primarily from plants of ‘USCAL84704’ in flower size as plants of ‘USCAL84704’ have smaller flowers. In addition, plants of the new Calibrachoa root faster and are more resistant to root pathogens than plants of ‘USCAL84704’.

Plants of the new Calibrachoa can be compared to plants of the Calibrachoa sp. ‘USCAL68604’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 22,964. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Calibrachoa differ primarily from plants of ‘USCAL68604’ in flower size as plants of ‘USCAL68604’ have smaller flowers. In addition, plants of the new Calibrachoa root faster and are more resistant to root pathogens than plants of ‘USCAL68604’.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Calibrachoa 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 colors of the new Calibrachoa plant.

The photograph at the bottom of the sheet is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘JGCAL09404’ grown in a container.

The photograph at the top of the sheet is a close-up view of a typical flowering plant of ‘JGCAL09404’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photographs and following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the spring in 10-cm containers in an acrylic-covered greenhouse in Carleton, Mich. and under cultural practices typical of commercial Calibrachoa production. During the production of the plants, day and night temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 30° C. Plants were six weeks from planting rooted cuttings when the photographs and 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.
