Description

Botanical designation: Sutera cordata.
Cultivar denomination: ‘INSUTSNPIM’.
Cross-Reference to a Related Application and Statement Regarding Prior Disclosures by Inventor/Applicant:
This application claims priority to a Canadian Plant Breeders' Rights application filed on Apr. 15, 2019, application number 19-9767. There have been no offers for sale anywhere in the world prior to the effective filing date of this Application and no accessibility to one of ordinary skill in the art could have been derived from the printed Plant Breeder's Rights documents.
The Inventor/Applicant asserts that no publications nor advertisements relating to sales, offers for sale or public distribution occurred more than one year prior to the effective filing date of this application. Any information about the claimed plant would have been obtained from a direct or indirect disclosure from the Inventor. Applicant claims a prior art exemption under 35 U.S.C. 102(b)(1) for disclosure and/or sales prior to the filing date but less than one year prior to the effective filing date.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Sutera plant, botanically known as Sutera cordata and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘INSUTSNPIM’.
The new Sutera plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Johannesburg, South Africa. The objective of the breeding program is to create new freely-branching and trailing Sutera plants with numerous large flowers and high temperature tolerance.
The new Sutera plant originated from a cross-pollination conducted by the Inventor in March, 2016 in Johannesburg, South Africa of a proprietary selection of Sutera cordata identified as code number Su15-7305-1, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with a proprietary selection of Sutera cordata identified as code number Su15-7006-1, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Sutera plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a flowering plant from within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a controlled greenhouse environment in Johannesburg, South Africa in April, 2018.
Asexual reproduction of the new Sutera plant by terminal vegetative cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in Gensingen, Germany since April, 2018 has shown that the unique features of this new Sutera plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
Plants of the new Sutera 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 ‘INSUTSNPIM’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘INSUTSNPIM’ as a new and distinct Sutera plant:
    • 1. Low mounding to outwardly spreading and trailing plant habit.
    • 2. Moderately vigorous growth habit.
    • 3. Freely branching habit; dense and bushy plant form.
    • 4. Early and freely flowering habit.
    • 5. Large light purple-colored flowers with darker purple-colored centers.
    • 6. Long flowering season.
    • 7. Good garden performance.
Plants of the new Sutera can be compared to plants of the female parent selection. Plants of the new Sutera differ primarily from plants of the female parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Sutera are larger than and not as compact as plants of the female parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Sutera have larger flowers than plants of the female parent selection.
    • 3. Flowers of plants of the new Sutera are light purple in color with darker purple-colored centers whereas flowers of plants of the female parent selection are soft lavender in color.
Plants of the new Sutera can be compared to plants of the male parent selection. Plants of the new Sutera differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Sutera are larger than and not as compact as plants of the male parent selection.
    • 2. Plants of the new Sutera are more freely branching than plants of the male parent selection.
    • 3. Flowers of plants of the new Sutera are light purple in color with darker purple-colored centers whereas flowers of plants of the male parent selection are lavender in color with pink-colored centers.
Plants of the new Sutera can be compared to plants of the Sutera cordata ‘DANOVA982’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 22,398. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Sutera differ primarily from plants of ‘DANOVA982’ in the following characteristics:
    • 1. Plants of the new Sutera have larger flowers than plants of ‘DANOVA982’.
    • 2. Flowers of plants of the new Sutera are light purple in color with darker purple-colored centers whereas flowers of plants of ‘DANOVA982’ are light violet in color.
    • 3. Plants of the new Sutera are more freely flowering and flower more continuously during the summer than plants of ‘DANOVA982’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Sutera 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 Sutera plant.
At the top of the photographic sheet (FIG. 1) is a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of ‘INSUTSNPIM’ grown in a container and
at the bottom of the photographic sheet is a close-up view of a typical flowering plant of ‘INSUTSNPIM’.
DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION
The aforementioned photographs and following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the spring in 15-cm containers in a polyethylene-covered greenhouse in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada and under cultural practices typical of commercial Sutera production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures averaged 27° C. and night temperatures averaged 15° C. Plants were pinched three weeks after propagating rooted cuttings and were six weeks from planting rooted cuttings when the photographs and description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2007 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
