Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Coreopsis plant named ‘Super Star’, characterized by its large single-type, light yellow-colored inflorescences having a burgundy-red colored eye zone, medium green-colored foliage, and moderately vigorous, compact-mounded growth habit, is disclosed.

Description

Latin name of genus and species of plant claimed: Coreopsis hybrid.
Variety denomination: ‘Super Star’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Coreopsis plant botanically known as Coreopsis hybrid and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Super Star’.
The new cultivar originated in a controlled breeding program in Santa Paula, Calif. during October 2011. The objective of the breeding program was the development of Coreopsis cultivars having substantially continuous blooming throughout the summer, and mounded growth habits.
The new Coreopsis cultivar is the result of open-pollination. The female (seed) parent of the new cultivar is the proprietary Coreopsis hybrid breeding selection coded 1473-03op-5op-1, not patented, characterized by its light yellow-colored flowers, light green-colored foliage, and moderately vigorous, semi-upright growth habit. The male (pollen) parent of the new cultivar is unknown. The new cultivar was discovered and selected as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the above stated open-pollination during May 2014 in a controlled environment in Santa Paula, Calif.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by terminal stem cuttings since May 2014 in Santa Paula, Calif. and Elburn, Ill. has demonstrated that the new cultivar reproduces true to type with all of the characteristics, as herein described, firmly fixed and retained through successive generations of such asexual propagation.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following characteristics of the new cultivar have been repeatedly observed and can be used to distinguish ‘Super Star’ as a new and distinct cultivar of Coreopsis plant:
    • 1. Large single-type, light yellow-colored inflorescences having a burgundy-red colored eye zone;
    • 2. Medium green-colored foliage; and
    • 3. Moderately vigorous, compact-mounded growth habit.
Plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of the female parent primarily in having a different ray floret color, darker foliage color, and more compact growth habit.
Of the many commercially available Coreopsis cultivars, the most similar in comparison to the new cultivar is the Coreopsis cultivar UpTick Yellow & Red ‘Baluptowed’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 28,865. However, in comparison, plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of ‘Baluptowed’ in at least the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new cultivar have fewer ray florets than plants of ‘Baluptowed’;
    • 2. Plants of the new cultivar have smaller simple and trifoliate leaves than plants of ‘Baluptowed’; and
    • 3. Plants of the new cultivar have larger diameter inflorescences than plants of ‘Baluptowed’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photographs show, as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same in color illustrations of this type, typical flower and foliage characteristics of the new cultivar. Colors in the photographs differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed description, which accurately describes the colors of ‘Super Star’. The plants were approximately four months old. The plants were grown in one-gallon containers for approximately 9 weeks in a greenhouse in Elburn, Ill. followed by 2 weeks in an open-sided polyhouse in West Chicago, Ill. Plants were given two pinches, one at one week before transplant and one two weeks after transplant.
FIG. 1 illustrates a side view of the overall growth and flowering habit of ‘Super Star’.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of an inflorescence of ‘Super Star’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The new cultivar has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions to date. Accordingly, it is possible that the phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in the environment, such as temperature, light intensity, and day length, without, however, any variance in genotype.
The chart used in the identification of colors described herein is The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society, London, England, 2015 edition, except where general color terms of ordinary significance are used. The color values were determined in July 2018 under natural light conditions in West Chicago, Ill.
The following descriptions and measurements describe approximately five-month old plants produced from cuttings from stock plants and grown under conditions comparable to those used in commercial practice. The plants were grown in one-gallon containers for approximately 9 weeks in a greenhouse in Elburn, Ill. followed by 5 weeks in an open-sided polyhouse in West Chicago, Ill. Plants were given two pinches, one at one week before transplant and one two weeks after transplant. Greenhouse temperatures in Elburn, Ill. were maintained at approximately 65° F. to 70° F. (18.3° C. to 21.1° C.) during the day and approximately 55° F. to 60° F. (12.8° C. to 15.6° C.) during the night. No supplemental lighting was provided. Measurements and numerical values represent averages of typical plants.
