Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Leucanthemum superbum hybrid plant named ‘DLEULUCCHI’ is disclosed, characterized by a very compact, plant form. Plants begin flowering early and do not require vernalization. The new variety is a Leucanthemum superbum hybrid plant, and naturally blooms from Spring to Fall.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Leucanthemum superbum.
Variety denomination: ‘DLEULUCCHI’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The new cultivar is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the inventor, Gavriel Danziger in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. The objective of the breeding program was to produce new Leucanthemum varieties with compact plant habits, good heat tolerance and not requiring vernalization. The open-pollination resulting in this new variety was made during November of 2013.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘DLEULUCCHI’ was first performed by basal vegetative cuttings in April of 2014, at a greenhouse in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. All subsequent propagation has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar 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 ‘DLEULUCCHI’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘DLEULUCCHI’ as a new and distinct Leucanthemum cultivar:
    • 1. Very early blooming
    • 2. Vernalization not required.
    • 3. Very compact plant habit.
    • 4. Good heat tolerance.
    • 5. Good rooting performance.
PARENT COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DLEULUCCHI’ are similar to plants of the parent variety, Leucanthemum ‘LK-9-19’ in most horticultural characteristics. Plants of ‘DLEULUCCHI’, however, differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a much more compact and dense plant habit than the seed parent.
    • 2. Overall plant size of the new variety is smaller than the seed parent.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DLEULUCCHI’ are similar to plants of the commercial variety Leucanthemum ‘Snowcap’, unpatented, in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘DLEULUCCHI’ differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety does not require vernalization to induce flowering, ‘Snow Cap’ requires vernalization.
    • 2. Plants of ‘DLEULUCCHI’ are much more compact than plants of ‘Snow Cap’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a typical plant of ‘DLEULUCCHI’ grown in a greenhouse. The pot size is a commercial 12 cm container. The plant shown is approximately 20 weeks old.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of the inflorescence.
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.
