Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Mandevilla plant named ‘Inmanbeppa’, characterized by its broadly upright and vining plant habit; moderately vigorous growth habit; freely branching habit; glossy dark green-colored leaves; early and freely flowering habit; red purple-colored flowers with yellow orange-colored centers that resist fading; and relative tolerance to low temperatures.

Description

Botanical designation: Mandevilla sanderi.
Cultivar denomination: ‘INMANBEPPA’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Mandevilla plant, botanically known as Mandevilla sanderi and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Inmanbeppa’.
The new Mandevilla plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Johannesburg, South Africa and Heidesheim, Germany. The objective of the breeding program is to create new freely branching Mandevilla plants that flower early and freely and have attractive flowers that resist fading and sun scald.
The new Mandevilla plant originated from a cross-pollination conducted by the Inventor in Johannesburg, South Africa in January, 2014 of a proprietary selection of Mandevilla sanderi identified as code number D11-2124-2, not patented, as the female, or seed parent with a proprietary selection of Mandevilla sanderi identified as code number D11-2097-1, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Mandevilla 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 Heidesheim, Germany in June, 2015.
Asexual reproduction of the new Mandevilla plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Heidesheim, Germany since August, 2015 has shown that the unique features of this new Mandevilla plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Mandevilla 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 ‘Inmanbeppa’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Inmanbeppa’ as a new and distinct Mandevilla plant:
    • 1. Broadly upright and vining plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely branching habit.
    • 4. Glossy dark green-colored leaves.
    • 5. Early and freely flowering habit.
    • 6. Red purple-colored flowers with yellow orange-colored centers that resist fading.
    • 7. Relatively tolerant to low temperatures.
Plants of the new Mandevilla can be compared to plants of the female parent selection. Plants of the new Mandevilla differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Mandevilla are more upright and larger than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Mandevilla are more freely branching than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 3. Plants of the new Mandevilla flower earlier than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 4. Flowers of plants of the new Mandevilla resist fading whereas flowers of plants of the female parent selection fade significantly.
Plants of the new Mandevilla can be compared to plants of the male parent selection. Plants of the new Mandevilla differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Mandevilla are larger than plants of the male parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Mandevilla have stronger roots than plants of the male parent selection.
    • 3. Plants of the new Mandevilla have darker red purple-colored flowers than plants of the male parent selection.
Plants of the new Mandevilla can also be compared to plants of Mandevilla sanderi ‘Fisrix Pinka’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 20,644. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Mandevilla differ primarily from plants ‘Fisrix Pinka’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Leaves of plants of the new Mandevilla are longer and broader than leaves of plants of ‘Fisrix Pinka’.
    • 2. Leaves of plants of the new Mandevilla are darker green in color than leaves of plants of ‘Fisrix Pinka’.
    • 3. Flower petals of plants of the new Mandevilla are shorter and broader than flower petals of plants of ‘Fisrix Pinka’.
    • 4. Flowers of plants of the new Mandevilla resist fading whereas flowers of plants of ‘Fisrix Pinka’ fade significantly.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Mandevilla 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 actual colors of the new Mandevilla plant.
The photograph on the first sheet (FIG. 1 of 2) comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Inmanbeppa’ grown in a container.
The photograph on the second sheet (FIG. 2 of 2) is a close-up view of a typical flowering plant of ‘Inmanbeppa’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photographs and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown during the late spring in 12-cm containers in a glass-covered greenhouse in Heidesheim, Germany and under cultural practices typical of commercial Mandevilla production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 12° C. to 35° C. and night temperatures ranged from 12° C. to 18° C. Plants were six 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.
