Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Monarda plant named ‘Allbrav’, characterized by its upright plant habit; dark green-colored leaves; freely flowering habit; light red purple-colored flowers; long flowering period; and good postproduction longevity.

Description

Botanical designation: Monarda didyma.
Cultivar denomination: ‘ALLBRAV’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Monarda plant, botanically known as Monarda didyma, typically grown as a cut flower and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Allbrav’.
The new Monarda plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Cuijk, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new strong Monarda plants with attractive flowers and good postproduction longevity.
The new Monarda plant originated from an open-pollination in September, 2013 of Monarda didyma ‘On Parade’, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown selection of Monarda didyma, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Monarda plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated open-pollination grown in a controlled nursery environment in Cuijk, The Netherlands in September, 2014.
Asexual reproduction of the new Monarda plant by terminal cuttings in Cuijk, The Netherlands, since April, 2015 has shown that the unique features of this new Monarda plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Monarda 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 ‘Allbrav’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Allbrav’ as a new and distinct Monarda plant:
    • 1. Upright plant habit.
    • 2. Dark green-colored leaves.
    • 3. Freely flowering habit.
    • 4. Light red purple-colored flowers.
    • 5. Long flowering period.
    • 6. Good postproduction longevity.
Plants of the new Monarda differ primarily from plants of the female parent, ‘On Parade’, in flower color as plants of ‘On Parade’ have purple-colored flowers.
Plants of the new Monarda can be compared to plants of Monarda didyma ‘Allbell’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 27,496. In side-by-side comparisons plants of the new Monarda differ from plants of ‘Allbell’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Monarda have lighter green-colored leaves than plants of ‘Allbell’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Monarda have lighter green-colored stems than plants of ‘Allbell’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Monarda have lighter red purple-colored flowers than plants of ‘Allbell’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Monarda 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 Monarda plant.
The photograph on the first sheet is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Allbrav’ grown in a 23-cm container.
The photograph at the top of the second sheet is a close-up view of the upper surface of a typical leaf of ‘Allbrav’.
The photograph at the bottom of the second sheet is a close-up view of a typical inflorescence of ‘Allbrav’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photographs and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown during September in an outdoor nursery in Cuijk, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial Monarda production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 15° C. to 32° C. and night temperatures ranged from 12° C. to 20° C. Plants were five months old when the photographs and the description were taken. In the detailed description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2015 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
