Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Hydrangea plant named ‘H216905’, characterized by its upright and rounded plant habit; vigorous growth habit and moderate growth rate; freely branching habit with strong, thick and sturdy stems; early, freely and uniformly flowering habit; mophead-type inflorescences with numerous light red purple-colored sterile flowers; sterile flowers with undulating and curled sepals; and good postproduction longevity.

Description

Botanical designation: Hydrangea macrophylla.

Cultivar denomination: ‘H216905’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Hydrangea plant, botanically known as Hydrangea macrophylla, commercially referred to as a mophead-type Hydrangea and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘H216905’.

The new Hydrangea plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in De Kwakel, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program was to create new freely-branching Hydrangea plants with strong sturdy stems, large inflorescences with numerous showy sterile flowers, attractive sterile flower color and good postproduction longevity.

The new Hydrangea plant originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor in April, 2011 in De Kwakel, The Netherlands, of a proprietary selection of Hydrangea macrophylla identified as code number 07-0166-002, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with a proprietary selection of Hydrangea macrophylla identified as code number 03-0134-219, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Hydrangea 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 greenhouse environment in De Kwakel, The Netherlands in March, 2013.

Asexual reproduction of the new Hydrangea plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled environment in De Kwakel, The Netherlands since June, 2013 has shown that the unique features of this new Hydrangea plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Hydrangea 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 ‘H216905’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘H216905’ as a new and distinct Hydrangea plant:

    • 1. Upright and rounded plant habit.
    • 2. Vigorous growth habit and moderate growth rate.
    • 3. Freely branching habit with strong, thick and sturdy stems.
    • 4. Early, freely and uniformly flowering habit.
    • 5. Mophead-type inflorescences with numerous light red purple-colored sterile flowers.
    • 6. Sterile flowers with undulating and curled sepals.
    • 7. Good postproduction longevity.

Plants of the new Hydrangea can be compared to plants of the female and male parent selections. Plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of the female and male parent selections in sterile flower sepals as plants of the new Hydrangea have sterile flower sepals that are undulating and curled whereas sterile flower sepals of plants of the female and male parent selections are mostly flat and not undulating and curled.

Plants of the new Hydrangea can be compared to plants of the Hydrangea hybrida ‘Agrihydravijf’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 19,731. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Hydrangea have lighter green-colored leaves than plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Hydrangea have shorter panicles than plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Hydrangea have sterile flower sepals that are undulating and curled whereas sterile flower sepals of plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’ are mostly flat and not undulating and curled.
    • 4. Plants of the new Hydrangea have sterile flower sepal margins that are entire whereas sterile flower sepal margins of plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’ are serrate to dentate.
    • 5. Plants of the new Hydrangea have darker red purple-colored sterile flower sepals than plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’.
    • 6. When “blued”, plants of the new Hydrangea have light blue-colored sterile flower sepals whereas plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’ have light violet blue-colored sterile flowers sepals.
    • 7. Plants of the new Hydrangea have more fertile flowers per inflorescence than plants of ‘Agrihydravijf’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the unique appearance of the new Hydrangea 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 from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Hydrangea plant.

The photograph on the first sheet is a top perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘H216905’.

The photograph on the second sheet is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘H216905’ that has been “blued”, that is, treated with aluminum sulfate.

The photograph on the third sheet is a close-up view of a typical inflorescence of ‘H216905’ that has been “blued”.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

Plants used in the aforementioned photographs and in the following description were grown during the spring in 13-cm containers in a glass-covered greenhouse in De Kwakel, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial Hydrangea production. During the production of the plants, day and night temperatures averaged 17° C. Plants of the new Hydrangea were pinched one time and were ten months old when the photographs and description were taken. Plants of the new Hydrangea can be successfully treated with aluminum sulfate to “blue” the inflorescences. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2015 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
