Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Torenia plant named ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’, characterized by its compact, semi-upright, mounding to trailing plant habit; vigorous growth habit; freely branching habit; relatively short internodes; freely flowering habit; large dark violet, violet and violet blue-colored flowers; and good garden performance.

Description

Botanical designation: Torenia sp.

Cultivar denomination: ‘SUNRENI SANIMIYA’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Torenia plant, botanically known as Torenia sp. and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’.

The new Torenia plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan. The objective of the breeding program is to develop new trailing and freely branching Torenia plants with numerous large attractive flowers.

The new Torenia plant originated from a cross-pollination in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan in June, 2012 of a proprietary selection of Torenia sp. identified as code designation BR4X, not patented, as the female, or seed parent with a proprietary selection of Torenia sp. identified as code designation TNC-W, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Torenia plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan in May, 2013.

Asexual reproduction of the new Torenia plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan since April, 2014 has shown that the unique features of this new Torenia plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Torenia 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 ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’ as a new and distinct Torenia plant:

    • 1. Compact, semi-upright, mounding to trailing plant habit.
    • 2. Vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely branching habit.
    • 4. Relatively short internodes.
    • 5. Freely flowering habit.
    • 6. Large dark violet, violet and violet blue-colored flowers.
    • 7. Good garden performance.

Plants of the new Torenia differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in branching habit as plants of the new Torenia plant are more freely branching than plants of the female parent selection.

Plants of the new Torenia differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in flower color as plants of the new Torenia plant have dark violet, violet and violet blue-colored flowers whereas plants of the male parent selection have white-colored flowers.

Plants of the new Torenia can be compared to plants of Torenia ‘Sunrenilabu’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 10,843. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Torenia and ‘Sunrenilabu’ differ primarily in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Torenia are semi-upright whereas plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’ are horizontally spreading.
    • 2. Plants of the new Torenia are more compact than plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Torenia are more freely branching than plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’.
    • 4. Plants of the new Torenia have shorter internodes than plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’.
    • 5. Plants of the new Torenia and ‘Sunrenilabu’ differ in flower color as plants of the new Torenia have dark violet, violet and violet blue-colored flowers whereas plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’ have light violet and violet-colored flowers.
    • 6. Plants of the new Torenia have shorter peduncles than plants of ‘Sunrenilabu’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Torenia 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 Torenia plant.

The photograph at the top of the sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’ grown in a container.

The photograph at the bottom of the sheet is a close-up view of typical flowers of ‘Sunreni Sanimiya’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photographs and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown during the summer in 24-cm containers in an outdoor nursery in Higashiomi, Shiga, Japan and under cultural practices typical for commercial Torenia production. During the production of the Torenia plants, day temperatures averaged 23° C. and night temperatures averaged 15° C. Plants were eight months 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.
