CROSS-REFERENCED TO CLOSELY RELATED APPLICATIONS
Title: Varieties of Hydrangea Plants
Applicant: Alex Frederick Schoemaker
Provisional application serial number: 62/765,663
Filed: Sep. 7, 2018
Title: Hydrangea Plant Named ‘LC NO3’
Applicant: Alex Frederick Schoemaker
Filed: Concurrently with the instant application Ser. No. 16/602,288
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Hydrangea plant, botanically known as Hydrangea paniculata, commercially referred to as a Hardy or Panicled Hydrangea and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘LC NO8’.
The new Hydrangea plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Boskoop, The Netherlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new Hydrangea plants with uniform plant habit and attractive inflorescences.
The new Hydrangea plant originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor in July, 2013 in Boskoop, The Netherlands, of Hydrangea paniculata ‘Silver Dollar’, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with Hydrangea paniculata ‘DVP Pinky’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,166, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Hydrangea 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 Boskoop, The Netherlands during the summer of 2016.
Asexual reproduction of the new Hydrangea plant by vegetative tip cuttings in a controlled environment in Boskoop, The Netherlands since the summer of 2016 has shown that the unique features of this new Hydrangea plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Hydrangea 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 ‘LC NO8’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘LC NO8’ as a new and distinct Hydrangea plant:
    • 1. Relatively compact and upright to broadly upright plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately freely branching habit with strong lateral branches.
    • 3. Freely flowering habit with plants remaining in flower for a long period time.
    • 4. Dense and hardy inflorescences with white and red purple-colored sterile flowers that age attractively to greyed purple in color with development.
    • 5. Good garden performance.
Plants of the new Hydrangea can be compared to plants of the female parent, ‘Silver Dollar’. Plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of ‘Silver Dollar’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Hydrangea are more compact than and not as upright as plants of ‘Silver Dollar’.
    • 2. Inflorescences of plants of the new Hydrangea are more open than and not as dense as inflorescences of plants of ‘Silver Dollar’.
Plants of the new Hydrangea can be compared to plants of the male parent, ‘DVP Pinky’. Plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of ‘DVP Pinky’ in inflorescence shape as inflorescences of plants of the new Hydrangea are distally more rounded than and distally not as pointed as inflorescences of plants of ‘DVP Pinky’.
Plants of the new Hydrangea can be compared to plants of the Hydrangea paniculata ‘LC NO3’, disclosed in a U.S. Plant Patent application filed concurrently. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of ‘LC NO3’ in plant habit as plants of the new Hydrangea are more compact, shorter and narrower than plants of ‘LC NO3’. In addition, plants of the new Hydrangea grow more slowly than and are not as vigorous as plants of ‘LC NO3’.
Plants of the new Hydrangea can also be compared to plants of the Hydrangea paniculata ‘Phantom’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Hydrangea differ primarily from plants of ‘Phantom’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Hydrangea are more compact and broader than and not as tall and upright as plants of ‘Phantom’.
    • 2. Leaves of plants of the new Hydrangea are darker green in color than leaves of plants of ‘Phantom’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the unique appearance of the new Hydrangea 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 from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Hydrangea plant.
The photograph on the first sheet (FIG. 1 of 2) is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘LC NO8’.
The photograph on the second sheet (FIG. 2 of 2) is a close-up view of a typical inflorescence of ‘LC NO8’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
Plants used in the aforementioned photographs and in the following description were grown during the late summer in 20-cm containers in an outdoor nursery in Boskoop, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial Hydrangea production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from about 16° C. to 25° C. and night temperatures ranged from about averaged 5° C. to 16° C. Plants of the new Hydrangea were pinched one time and were two years old when the photographs and description were taken. As a Hardy or Panicled Hydrangea, plants of the new Hydrangea are typically not treated with aluminum sulfate to “blue” the inflorescences. 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.
