Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Primula vulgaris plant named ‘KERBELBLIC’ is disclosed, characterized by purple and white double flowers, and an abundant, long flowering period. Plants have shown the ability to be propagated by tissue culture at a good rate. Under low temperature and low light conditions, the flowers do not open fully, instead forming a unique rosebud shape. The new variety is a Primula vulgaris, suitable for outdoor landscape and container use.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Primula vulgaris.

Variety denomination: ‘KERBELBLIC’.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The new cultivar is the product of a planned breeding program under the direction of the inventors, David Kerley, Priscilla Kerley, Sarah Kerley, and Timothy Kerley, all citizens of the United Kingdom. The objective of the breeding program was to produce new, compact pot-type Primula vulgaris cultivars with abundant double flowers for commercial ornamental purposes. The new cultivar resulted from crossing of two unpatented, unnamed proprietary Primula vulgaris seedlings during March of 2010. The selection of the new variety ‘Kerbelblic’ was made in March 2011, by the inventors at a research greenhouse located in Cambridge, UK.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘KERBELBLIC’ by division was first performed at the same research greenhouse in Cambridge, UK during May of 2011, by division and tissue culture. Both methods have shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations. Date of first sale was Aug. 28, 2018. 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 before the filing of this application fall within the exception allowed under 102(b)(1). A CPVO application has been applied for Aug. 12, 2019, having application filing number 20191960.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The cultivar ‘KERBELBLIC’ 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 ‘KERBELBLIC’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘KERBELBLIC’ as a new and distinct Primula cultivar:

    • 1. Purple and white bicolored flowers.
    • 2. Double flowers.
    • 3. Abundant flowering.
    • 4. Long flowering period.
    • 5. Compact and neat plant habit.
    • 6. Good propagation rate in tissue culture.
    • 7. Reliably perennial in many climate zones.
    • 8. Under low temperature and low light conditions, flowers do not open fully, developing a rosebud type appearance.
PARENT COMPARISON

Plants of the new cultivar ‘KERBELBLIC’ are similar to plants of the seed parent in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar differ in the following ways:

    • 1. New cultivar has double flowers; seed parent is single flowered.
    • 2. New variety is sterile; seed parent is fertile.
    • 3. New cultivar has a long flowering period; seed parent ceased flowering when seed had set.

Plants of the new cultivar ‘KERBELBLIC’ are similar to plants of the pollen parent in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar differ in the following ways:

    • 1. New cultivar has double flowers; pollen parent is single flowered.
    • 2. New variety is sterile; pollen parent is fertile.
    • 3. New cultivar has a long flowering period; pollen parent ceased flowering when seed had set.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON

Plants of the new variety can be compared to plants of the unpatented Primula vulgaris cultivar ‘Kerbelil’. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Over, Cambridge, United Kingdom, plants of the new Primula differed from plants of the cultivar ‘Kerbelil’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. New variety has purple and white flowers; comparator has purple-violet flowers.
    • 2. This comparator is a slightly taller and wider plant than the new variety.
    • 3. New variety has a dense rosette of petals; this comparator's flower has a looser, more open structure.

Plants of the ‘KERBELBLIC’ can be compared to plants of the unpatented Primula vulgaris cultivar ‘Kerbeldawn’. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Over, Cambridge, United Kingdom, plants of the new Primula differed from plants of the cultivar ‘Kerbeldawn’ in the following characteristics:

    • 1. The new variety is a shorter plant than this comparator.
    • 2. New cultivar is a late season variety; this comparator is a mid-season variety.
    • 3. New variety has purple and white flowers; this comparator has a large yellow spot in the middle of the flower.
    • 4. New variety has a loose, more open flower structure; this comparator has a dense rosette of petals.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color typical plants of ‘KERBELBLIC’ grown in Over, Cambridge, United Kingdom, in a glass-covered greenhouse and under commercial production practices during the Winter, in low light conditions and low temperature conditions.

FIG. 2 illustrates a plant of the new variety grown under higher light, higher temperature conditions. Plants in both figures are about five months old when the photographs were taken.

FIG. 3 illustrates a close up of a typical fully opened flower of ‘KERBELBLIC’, grown under high light, higher temperature conditions.

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.
