Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Rudbeckia plant named ‘RUDHT37’, characterized by its broadly upright and mounded plant habit; freely branching growth habit; freely flowering habit; large single-type inflorescences with yellow orange-colored ray florets positioned above the foliar plane on strong peduncles; and good garden and container performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Rudbeckia hirta.
Cultivar denomination: ‘RUDHT37’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Rudbeckia plant, botanically known as Rudbeckia hirta, commonly referred to as Black-eyed Susan, and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘RUDHT37’.
The new Rudbeckia plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new vigorous Rudbeckia plants with large attractive inflorescences.
The new Rudbeckia plant originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands in July, 2015 of two unnamed proprietary seedling selections of Rudbeckia hirta, not patented. The new Rudbeckia 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 environment in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands in July, 2016.
Asexual reproduction of the new Rudbeckia by in vitro meristem culture in a controlled greenhouse environment in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands since March, 2017 has shown that the unique features of this new Rudbeckia are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Rudbeckia 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 ‘RUDHT37’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘RUDHT37’ as a new and distinct Rudbeckia plant:
    • 1. Broadly upright and mounded plant habit.
    • 2. Freely branching growth habit.
    • 3. Freely flowering habit.
    • 4. Large single-type inflorescences with yellow orange-colored ray florets positioned above the foliar plane on strong peduncles.
    • 5. Good garden and container performance.
Plants of the new Rudbeckia differ from plants of the parent selections in the following characteristics in plant habit as plants of the new Rudbeckia are more compact and uniform than plants of the parent selections.
Plants of the new Rudbeckia can be compared to Rudbeckia hirta X Echinacea purpurea ‘ET-RDB 02’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 25,243. Plants of the new Rudbeckia differ primarily from plants of ‘ET-RDB 02’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Rudbeckia are taller than plants of ‘ET-RDB 02’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Rudbeckia and ‘ET-RDB 02’ differ in ray floret color as plants of ‘ET-RDB 02’ have yellow, orange and reddish-colored ray florets.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Rudbeckia 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 Rudbeckia.
The photograph on the first sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘RUDHT37’ grown in a container.
The photograph at the top of the second sheet is a close-up view of typical leaves of ‘RUDHT37’.
The photograph at the bottom of the second sheet is a close-up view of a typical inflorescence of ‘RUDHT37’ .
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photographs and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown in 19-cm containers during the late summer and early autumn in an outdoor nursery in Zuidwolde, The Netherlands and under cultural conditions typical of commercial Rudbeckia production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 30° C. and night temperatures ranged from 6° C. to 18° C. Plants were 18 weeks old when the photographs were taken and 17 weeks old when the detailed description was taken. 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.
