Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant named ‘Balucpea20’, characterized by its yellow, orange, and reddish-purple multicolored inflorescences, dark green-colored foliage, and moderately vigorous, upright-mounded growth habit, is disclosed.

Description

Latin name of genus and species of plant claimed: Lantana camara.
Variety denomination: ‘Balucpea20’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant botanically known as Lantana camara and hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name ‘Balucpea20’.
The new cultivar originated in a controlled breeding program in Guadalupe, Calif. during September 2013. The objective of the breeding program was the development of Lantana cultivars with continuous flowering and a moderately vigorous, upright-mounded growth habit.
The new Lantana cultivar is the result of cross-pollination. The female (seed) parent of the new cultivar is the proprietary Lantana camara breeding selection coded 9087, not patented, characterized by its dark red-colored inflorescences, medium green-colored foliage, low growth vigor and compact-mounded growth habit. The male (pollen) parent of the new cultivar is BANDANA Peach ‘LANZ0002’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 23,317, characterized by its yellow, orange, and light red multicolored flowers, medium green-colored foliage, and moderately vigorous, relatively compact and mounding growth habit. The new cultivar was discovered and selected as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the above stated cross-pollination during September 2014 in a controlled environment in Guadalupe, Calif.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by terminal stem cuttings since September 2014 in Guadalupe, Calif. and Arroyo Grande, Calif. has demonstrated that the new cultivar reproduces true to type with all of the characteristics, as herein described, firmly fixed and retained through successive generations of such asexual propagation.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The following characteristics of the new cultivar have been repeatedly observed and can be used to distinguish ‘Balucpea20’ as a new and distinct cultivar of Lantana plant:
    • 1. Yellow, orange, and reddish-purple multicolored inflorescences;
    • 2. Dark green-colored foliage; and
    • 3. Moderately vigorous, upright-mounded growth habit.
Plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of the female parent primarily in inflorescence color, darker green foliage color, and a more vigorous growth habit. Plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of the male parent primarily in being shorter and narrower with a less rounded growth habit.
Of the many commercially available Lantana cultivars, the most similar in comparison to the new cultivar is Little Lucky Peach Glow ‘Balluceagl’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 24,554. However, in side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of ‘Balluceagl’ in at least the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new cultivar have darker orange-colored inflorescences than plants of ‘Balluceagl’; and
    • 2. Plants of the new cultivar are taller and wider than plants of ‘Balluceagl’.
The new cultivar can also be compared to Bloomify Mango ‘Baloomang’ U.S. Plant patent application Ser. No. 16/602,134. However, in side-by-side comparison, plants of the new cultivar differ from plants of ‘Baloomang’ in at least the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new cultivar are shorter and narrower than plants of ‘Baloomang’;
    • 2. Plants of the new cultivar have flower buds with more yellow coloration than plants of ‘Baloomang’; and
    • 3. Plants of the new cultivar have smaller leaves than plants of ‘Baloomang’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photographs show, as nearly true as it is reasonably possible to make the same in color illustrations of this type, typical flower and foliage characteristics of the new cultivar. Colors in the photographs may differ slightly from the color values cited in the detailed description, which accurately describes the colors of ‘Balucpea20’. The plants were approximately 5 months old and grown in 4.5-inch pots for approximately 15 weeks in a greenhouse in West Chicago, Ill.
FIG. 1 illustrates a side view of the overall growth and flowering habit of ‘Balucpea20’.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close-up view of an individual inflorescence of ‘Balucpea20’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The new cultivar has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions to date. Accordingly, it is possible that the phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in the environment, such as temperature, light intensity, and day length, without, however, any variance in genotype.
The chart used in the identification of colors described herein is The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society, London, England, 2015 edition, except where general color terms of ordinary significance are used. The color values were determined in May 2019 under natural light conditions in West Chicago, Ill.
The following descriptions and measurements describe approximately 5-month old plants produced from cuttings from stock plants and grown in a glass-covered greenhouse under conditions comparable to those used in commercial practice. The plants were grown in West Chicago, Ill. in 4.5-inch pots for approximately 15 weeks utilizing a soilless growth medium. Greenhouse temperatures were maintained at approximately 67° F. to 72° F. (19° C. to 22° C.) during the day and approximately 65° F. to 68° F. (18° C. to 20° C.) during the night. Supplemental lighting was used. Measurements and numerical values represent averages of typical plants.
