CROSS-REFERENCED TO CLOSELY RELATED APPLICATIONS

Title: Lavandula Plant Named ‘sako1638’

Applicant: Lammert Koning

Filed: Concurrently with the instant application Ser. No. 16/602,699

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct Lavandula plant, botanically known as Lavandula angustifolia, commonly referred to as English Lavender and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘sako1644’.

The new Lavandula plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Boskoop, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program was to develop new unique Lavandula plants with good performance and attractive plant form and flower coloration.

The new Lavandula plant originated from an open-pollination in June, 2015 of Lavandula angustifolia ‘Felice’, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown proprietary selection of Lavandula angustifolia as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Lavandula plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of the stated open-pollination in a controlled environment in Boskoop, The Netherlands in July, 2016.

Asexual reproduction of the new Lavandula plant by terminal stem cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Boskoop, The Netherlands since August, 2016 has shown that the unique features of this new Lavandula plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Lavandula 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 the new Lavandula plant. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘sako1644’ as a new and distinct Lavandula plant:

    • 1. Compact and upright to somewhat outward plant habit.
    • 2. Strong and sturdy plants.
    • 3. Freely branching growth habit.
    • 4. Freely flowering habit.
    • 5. Violet-colored flowers positioned on strong and erect peduncles.
    • 6. Good garden performance.

Plants of the new Lavandula differ primarily from plants of the female parent, ‘Felice’, in flower color as plants of the new Lavandula have violet-colored flowers whereas plants of ‘Felice’ have light blue-colored flowers. In addition, plants of the new Lavandula are not as strongly upright as plants of ‘Felice’.

Plants of the new Lavandula can be compared to plants of Lavandula angustifolia ‘sako1638’, disclosed in a U.S. Plant Patent application filed concurrently. Plants of the new Lavandula differ from plants of ‘sako1638’ primarily in flower color as plants of the new Lavandula have lighter violet-colored flowers than plants of ‘sako1638’. In addition, plants of the new Lavandula are broader than and not as upright as plants of ‘sako1638’.

Plants of the new Lavandula can be compared to plants of the Lavandula angustifolia ‘Annet’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 28,867. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Lavandula differ primarily from plants of ‘Annet’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Lavandula are not as compact as plants of ‘Annet’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lavandula are not as strongly upright as plants of ‘Avnet’.

Plants of the new Lavandula can be compared to plants of the Lavandula angustifolia ‘Blue Royalty’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 20,657. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Lavandula differ primarily from plants of ‘Blue Royalty’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. Plants of the new Lavandula are not as compact as plants of ‘Blue Royalty’.
    • 2. Plants of the new Lavandula are not as strongly upright as plants of ‘Blue Royalty’.
    • 3. Plants of the new Lavandula have violet-colored flowers whereas plants of ‘Blue Royalty’ have dark purple-colored flowers.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Lavandula 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 Lavandula plant.

The photograph on the first sheet (FIG. 1 of 2) is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘sako1644’ 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 ‘sako1644’.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

Plants used in the aforementioned photographs and following detailed description were grown in 17-cm containers during the spring and early summer in an outdoor nursery in Boskoop, The Netherlands after being grown in a glass-covered greenhouse during the winter and under cultural practices typical of commercial Lavandula production. Plants were pinched one time and were eight months old when the photographs and description were taken. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 10° C. to 30° C. and night temperatures ranged from 5° C. to 20° C. 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.
