Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Gerbera plant named ‘Garswlove’, characterized by its compact, broadly upright and uniformly mounding plant habit; dense and bushy appearance; numerous inflorescences with bright red-colored ray florets; upright and strong scapes; and good garden performance and relatively tolerant to cold temperatures.

Description

Botanical designation: Gerbera hybrida.
Cultivar denomination: ‘GARSWLOVE’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Gerbera plant, botanically known as Gerbera hybrida and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Garswlove’.
The new Gerbera plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in De Kwakel, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new compact garden Gerbera plants with numerous attractive inflorescences, resistant to cold temperatures and good garden performance.
The new Gerbera plant originated from a cross-pollination made during the spring of 2013 in De Kwakel, The Netherlands of a proprietary selection of Gerbera hybrida identified as code number 13T1040, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with a proprietary selection of Gerbera hybrida identified as code number 13T1077, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Gerbera plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in De Kwakel, The Netherlands during the summer of 2014.
Asexual reproduction of the new Gerbera plant by cuttings in a controlled environment in De Kwakel, The Netherlands since the autumn of 2014 has shown that the unique features of this new Gerbera plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Gerbera 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 ‘Garswlove’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Garswlove’ as a new and distinct Gerbera plant:
    • 1. Compact, broadly upright and uniformly mounding plant habit.
    • 2. Dense and bushy appearance.
    • 3. Numerous inflorescences with bright red-colored ray florets.
    • 4. Upright and strong scapes.
    • 5. Good garden performance and relatively tolerant to cold temperatures.
Plants of the new Gerbera differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Gerbera have smaller inflorescences than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 2. Inflorescences of plants of the new Gerbera smaller ray florets than inflorescences of plants of the female parent selection.
    • 3. Plants of the new Gerbera have lighter red-colored ray florets than plants of the female parent selection.
Plants of the new Gerbera differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in ray floret shape as ray florets of plants of the new Gerbera have finely emarginate to finely praemorse apices whereas ray florets of plants of the male parent selection have deeply emarginate to deeply praemorse apices. In addition, plants of the new Gerbera have dark green-colored leaves whereas plants of the male parent selection have green-colored leaves tinged with anthocyanin (reddish purple).
Plants of the new Gerbera can be compared to plants of the Gerbera hybrida ‘Garglow Imp’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 26,784. Plants of the new Gerbera differ from plants of ‘Garglow Imp’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Leaves of plants of the new Gerbera are narrower than leaves of plants of ‘Garglow Imp’.
    • 2. Inflorescences of plants of the new Gerbera are smaller than inflorescences of plants of ‘Garglow Imp’.
    • 3. Ray florets of plants of the new Gerbera are bright red in color whereas ray florets of plants of ‘Garglow Imp’ are bright orange in color.
    • 4. Peduncles of plants of the new Gerbera are somewhat shorter than peduncles of plants of ‘Garglow Imp’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH
The accompanying photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new Gerbera plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Gerbera plant.
The photograph comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Garswlove’ grown in a container.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photograph and following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the winter until early summer in 15-cm containers in a glass-covered greenhouse in De Kwakel, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial garden Gerbera production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 16° C. to 20° C. and night temperatures ranged from 15° C. to 17° C. Plants were six months old when the photograph was taken and seven months 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.
