Abstract

A new and distinct Bougainvillea cultivar named ‘Vista5’ is disclosed, characterized by white bracts with a pink mottled blush, a compact growth habit, and variegated foliage. The new variety is a Bougainvillea, typically produced as an ornamental plant.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Bougainvillea communis.

Variety denomination: ‘Vista5’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The new cultivar is the product of chance discovery. The new variety originated as naturally occurring whole plant mutation of the patented variety Bougainvillea communis ‘Vista4’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 29,609. The inventor discovered the variety in a commercial planting of the parent variety in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico in March of 2016.

After identifying the interesting flower color mutation, the inventor observed the single plant mutation for several months. First propagation was performed by terminal vegetative cuttings at a commercial greenhouse during May of 2016, in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico. Access to all plants was restricted, as plants were kept in a facility belonging to the inventor and not open to the public. Date of first sale was Jan. 12, 2018. This sale was made directly by the inventor or one who obtained the claimed invention directly or indirectly from the inventor. This sale and all public disclosures made before the filing of this application fall within the exception allowed under 102(b)(1).

Through subsequent propagation by vegetative cuttings, multiple generations have been reproduced, which have shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The cultivar ‘Vista5’ has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment such as temperature, day length, 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 ‘Vista5’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Vista5’ as a new and distinct Bougainvillea cultivar:

  • 1. Variegated foliage.
  • 2. White bracts with a pink mottled blush,
  • 3. Compact growth habit.
PARENT COMPARISON

Plants of the new cultivar ‘Vista5’ are similar to the parent, in most horticultural characteristics. However, characteristics of the new cultivar differ in the following:

  • 1. The new variety has white bracts with a pink mottled blush, while the parent has magenta bracts.
  • 2. The new variety is less vigorous than the parent.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON

Plants of ‘Vista5’ are similar in some horticultural characteristics to the variety Bougainvillea ‘Yani's Delight’, unpatented. The new variety, however, differs in the following:

  • 1. The new variety has variegated foliage, ‘Yani's Delight’ does not.
  • 2. The new variety has a more compact growth habit than this comparator.
  • 3. ‘Yani's Delight’ has more pink blush coloration to the white bracts than ‘Vista5’.

Plants of ‘Vista5’ are similar in some horticultural characteristics to the variety Bougainvillea ‘Imperial Thai Delight’, unpatented. The new variety, however, differs in the following:

  • 1. The new variety has variegated foliage, ‘Imperial Thai Delight’ does not.
  • 2. The new variety has a more compact growth habit than this comparator.
  • 3. ‘Imperial Thai Delight’ has more pink blush coloration to the white bracts than ‘Vista5’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a typical plant of ‘Vista5’ grown outdoors at a commercial nursery in Juana Diaz, Puerto Rico. This plant is approximately 9 months old, shown in a 6 inch pot.

FIG. 2 illustrates a closer view of the foliage and flowering bracts.

The photographs were taken using conventional techniques and although colors may appear different from actual colors due to light reflectance it is as accurate as possible by conventional photographic techniques.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart 2007, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
