Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Osteospermum plant named ‘BKOSTOR’, characterized by its upright to outwardly spreading and mounding plant habit; moderately vigorous growth rate; freely branching growth habit; dark green-colored leaves; freely flowering habit; daisy-type inflorescences with yellow-colored ray florets with greyed orange-colored longitudinal stripes; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Osteospermum ecklonis.
Cultivar denomination: ‘BKOSTOR’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Osteospermum plant, botanically known as Osteospermum ecklonis and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘BKOSTOR’.
The new Osteospermum plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Odense, Denmark. The objective of the program is to create and develop new Osteospermum plants with uniformly mounded plant habit, freely flowering habit and attractive ray and disc floret coloration.
The new Osteospermum plant originated from a cross-pollination by the Inventor in June, 2014 of a proprietary selection of Osteospermum ecklonis identified as code number 12-0002-01, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with a proprietary selection of Osteospermum ecklonis identified as code number 15-0171-01, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Osteospermum 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 Odense, Denmark in July, 2015.
Asexual reproduction of the new Osteospermum plant by terminal cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Odense, Denmark since November, 2015 has shown that the unique features of this new Osteospermum plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Osteospermum 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 ‘BKOSTOR’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘BKOSTOR’ as a new and distinct Osteospermum plant:
    • 1. Upright to outwardly spreading and mounding plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately vigorous growth rate.
    • 3. Freely branching growth habit.
    • 4. Dark green-colored leaves.
    • 5. Freely flowering habit.
    • 6. Daisy-type inflorescences with yellow-colored ray florets with greyed orange-colored longitudinal stripes.
    • 7. Good garden performance.
Plants of the new Osteospermum differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in ray floret color. Plants of the new Osteospermum have yellow-colored ray florets with greyed orange-colored longitudinal stripes whereas plants of the female parent selection have clear yellow-colored ray florets.
Plants of the new Osteospermum differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in ray floret color. Plants of the new Osteospermum have yellow-colored ray florets with greyed orange-colored longitudinal stripes whereas plants of the male parent selection have light yellow-colored ray florets with darker yellow-colored centers.
Plants of the new Osteospermum can be compared to plants of the Osteospermum ecklonis ‘Sunny Cilia’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Osteospermum differ from plants of ‘Sunny Cilia’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Osteospermum are more vigorous than and not as compact as plants of ‘Sunny Cilia’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Osteospermum are freely branching than plants of ‘Sunny Cilia’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Osteospermum flower later than plants of ‘Sunny Cilia’.
    • 4. Plants of the new Osteospermum and ‘Sunny Cilia’ differ in ray floret color as plants of the new Osteospermum have yellow-colored ray florets with greyed orange-colored longitudinal stripes whereas plants of ‘Sunny Cilia’ have orange-colored ray florets.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Osteospermum 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 Osteospermum plant.
The photograph on the first sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘BKOSTOR’ grown in a container.
The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of a typical inflorescence of ‘BKOSTOR’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photographs, following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the spring and summer in 9-cm containers in a glass-covered greenhouse in Odense, Denmark and under cultural practices typical of commercial Osteospermum production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 14° C. to 20° C. and night temperatures averaged 14° C. Plants were pinched one time and were 14 weeks old when the photographs and description were 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.
