Abstract

A new and distinct Leucanthemum plant named ‘Adorable’ characterized by small, double, daisy-type inflorescences, light yellow ray florets in bud, an excellent crown count, a small, compact, upright habit, and excellent vigor.

Description

Botanical denomination: Leucanthemum x superbum.
Variety designation: ‘Adorable’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Leucanthemum and given the cultivar name ‘Adorable’. Leucanthemum is in the family Asteraceae. This new cultivar originated from a controlled cross between unknown, unnamed, proprietary Leucanthemum x superbum seedlings. This was part of a controlled breeding program to obtain dwarf Leucanthemum. Leucanthemum ‘Adorable’ was selected for its white double daisy inflorescences and its upright, compact, small habit.
Compared to Leucanthemum x superbum ‘Bridal Bouquet’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 24,260, the new cultivar has a more upright habit and smaller, more numerous inflorescences.
This new Leucanthemum cultivar is distinguished as unique with its:
    • 1. small, double, daisy-type inflorescences,
    • 2. light yellow ray florets in bud,
    • 3. an excellent crown count,
    • 4. a small, compact, upright habit, and
    • 5. excellent vigor.
This new cultivar has been reproduced only by asexual propagation (division and tissue culture). Each of the progeny exhibits identical characteristics to the original plant. Asexual propagation by division and tissue culture using standard micropropagation techniques with terminal and lateral shoots, as done in Canby, Oreg., shows that the foregoing characteristics and distinctions come true to form and are established and transmitted through succeeding propagations. The present invention has not been evaluated under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary with variations in environment without a change in the genotype of the plant.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS
FIG. 1 shows a single, 1 year old plant of the new cultivar growing in full sun in the trial field in early July in Canby, Oreg.
FIG. 2 shows an expanded view of 4 plants of the new cultivar in the field plant out in full sun in early July of Canby, Oreg.
