Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Gaura plant named ‘DGAUR137’, characterized by its compact, upright to outwardly spreading plant habit; moderately vigorous growth habit; freely basal branching habit; dark green-colored leaves; early and freely flowering habit; light red purple-colored flowers; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Gaura lindheimeri.

Cultivar denomination: ‘DGAUR137’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Gaura plant, botanically known as Gaura lindheimeri and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘DGAUR137’.

The new Gaura is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. The objective of the breeding program is to create new semi-upright Gaura plants with attractive leaf and flower coloration.

The new Gaura plant originated from an open-pollination in October, 2010 in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel of a proprietary selection of Gaura lindheimeri identified as code designation GO-Z-23, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown selection of Gaura lindheimeri as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Gaura plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated open-pollination in a controlled environment in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel during the summer of 2011.

Asexual reproduction of the new Gaura plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled environment in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel since September, 2011 has shown that the unique features of this new Gaura plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Gaura 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 ‘DGAUR137’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘DGAUR137’ as a new and distinct Gaura plant:

    • 1. Compact, upright to outwardly spreading plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely basal branching habit.
    • 4. Dark green-colored leaves.
    • 5. Early and freely flowering habit.
    • 6. Light red purple-colored flowers.
    • 7. Good garden performance.

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

    • 1. Plants of the new Gaura are more compact than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Gaura are more freely branching and denser than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 3. Plants of the new Gaura have shorter lateral branches than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 4. Plants of the new Gaura flower earlier than plants of the female parent selection.

Plants of the new Gaura can be compared to plants of Gaura lindheimeri ‘KLEGL06261’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Gaura differ from plants of ‘KLEGL06261’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Gaura have broader leaves than plants of ‘KLEGL06261’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Gaura have slightly larger flowers than plants of ‘KLEGL06261’.
    • 3. Flowers of plants of the new Gaura are brighter red purple in color than flowers of plants of ‘KLEGL06261’.

Plants of the new Gaura can be compared to plants of Gaura lindheimeri ‘KLEAU04263’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Gaura differ from plants of ‘KLEAU04263’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Gaura have broader leaves than plants of ‘KLEAU04263’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Gaura flower earlier than plants of ‘KLEAU04263’.
    • 3. Flowers of plants of the new Gaura are brighter red purple in color than flowers of plants of ‘KLEAU04263’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

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

The photograph on the first sheet is a side perspective view of a typical plant of ‘DGAUR137’ grown in a container.

The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of typical flowers of ‘DGAUR137’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photographs and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown during the late spring and early summer in 13-cm containers in an outdoor nursery in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel and under cultural practices typical of commercial Gaura production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 26° C. and night temperatures ranged from 12° C. to 17° C. Plants were seven weeks old 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.
