Abstract

A new and distinct Verbena cultivar named ‘DVERVAVL’ is disclosed, characterized by early flowering, an abundance of magenta flowers, semi-trailing habit and tolerance to powdery mildew. The new variety is a Verbena, normally produced as an outdoor garden or container plant.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Verbena hybrid.
Variety denomination: ‘DVERVAVL’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The new Verbena 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 Verbena varieties for ornamental purposes. The cross resulting in this new variety was made during January of 2015.
The seed parent is the, unpatented, propriety variety referred to as Verbena ‘VE-14-7534’. The pollen parent is the, unpatented, propriety variety referred to as Verbena ‘VE-15-8069’. The new variety was discovered in September of 2015 by the inventor in a group of seedlings resulting from the crossing, in a greenhouse in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. Date of first sale was Jun. 3, 2018, in Israel. 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 between Jun. 3, 2018, and the filing of this application fall within the exception allowed under 102(b)(1).
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ first by vegetative terminal cuttings was first performed during September of 2015, at a greenhouse in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. Subsequent propagation by vegetative cuttings has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type in multiple successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ 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 ‘DVERVAVL’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘DVERVAVL’ as a new and distinct Verbena cultivar:
    • 1. Flowers early.
    • 2. Semi-trailing habit.
    • 3. Tolerant to powdery mildew.
    • 4. Highly floriferous plants.
    • 5. Bright magenta flower color.
PARENT COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ are similar to plants of the seed parent in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ differ in the following;
    • 1. New variety is more vigorous than the seed parent, which has weaker growing habit.
    • 2. The flower color of the new variety is darker than the parent.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ are similar to plants of the pollen parent in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ differ in the following;
    • 1. The new variety has a lighter flower color than the parent.
    • 2. The new variety is more tolerant to powdery mildew than the parent.
    • 3. The new variety has a semi-trailing habit, while the parent is compact and mounding.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ can be compared to the unpatented commercial variety Verbena ‘Estrella Up Blueberry’. These varieties are similar in most horticultural characteristics; however, ‘DVERVAVL’ differs in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a darker flower color than this comparator.
    • 2. The new variety is more tolerant to powdery mildew than this comparator.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘DVERVAVL’ can also be compared to the unpatented commercial variety Verbena ‘EnduraScape Blue’. These varieties are similar in most horticultural characteristics; however, ‘DVERVAVL’ differs in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a darker flower color than this comparator.
    • 2. The new variety has a semi-trailing habit, while this comparator has a trailing habit.
    • 3. The new variety has larger flowers than this comparator.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a typical plant of ‘DVERVAVL’ grown in in a greenhouse, in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel, photographed in February.
FIG. 2 illustrates in full color a typical inflorescence of ‘DVERVAVL’. Age of the plant photographed is approximately 20 weeks from a rooted cutting in a 20 cm pot.
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 Mini Colour Chart 2005 except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
