Abstract

A new and distinct cultivar of Begonia masoniana plant named ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ is disclosed, characterized by large leaves with long, thick petioles. Foliage is uniquely colored with a striking brown leaf rim against bright green leaves and distinct brown palmate center patch along veins. Upper leaf surfaces are puckered and hairy. The new variety is a Begonia, and is normally used as an ornamental garden or container plant.

Description

Latin name of the genus and species: Begonia masoniana.
Variety denomination: ‘EC-BEGO-1902’.
BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
The new cultivar is the product of a planned breeding program. The new variety originated as the result of a crossing performed during 2014 of two unnamed, unpatented Begonia masoniana seedlings. The selection of the new variety was made in 2017, by the inventor at a greenhouse located in Sappemeer, The Netherlands.
Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ was first performed at a greenhouse in Sappemeer, The Netherlands by leaf cuttings during March 2017. ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ has since produced several generations by vegetative cuttings and has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type.
SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
The cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ 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 ‘EC-BEGO-1902’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ as a new and distinct Begonia masoniana cultivar:
    • 1. Unique striking brown leaf rim, with a distinct brown palmate center patch along veins, and bright green leaves.
    • 2. Distinct hairy/puckered leaf upper surface.
    • 3. Large distinctive leaves with long, thick petioles.
PARENT COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ are similar to plants of the seed parent variety in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a slightly larger plant habit than the seed parent.
    • 2. The new variety has a slightly longer leaf stem than the seed parent.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ are similar to plants of the pollen parent variety in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a brown leaf rim, while the pollen parent does not.
    • 2. The new variety has slightly longer leaf stems than the pollen parent.
    • 3. The new variety has thicker leaf stems than the pollen parent.
COMMERCIAL COMPARISON
Plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ are similar to plants of the unpatented commercial variety, Begonia ‘Iron Cross’, in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has a brown leaf rim, while this comparator does not.
    • 2. The new variety has a much higher plant habit than this comparator.
    • 3. The new variety has much larger leaves than this comparator.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ are similar to plants of the commercial variety, Begonia maculata ‘77KL Sunrise’, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 12,808, in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ differ in the following:
    • 1. The new variety has broad ovate leaves with a brown rim, while this comparator has elongated green leaves with a white oval dot.
    • 2. Leaves of the new variety have a hairy, puckered upper surface, while this comparator's leaves are sparely hirsute without puckering.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ are similar to plants of the commercial variety, Begonia masoniana ‘EC-BEGO-1901’, filed concurrently, and having U.S. application Ser. No. 16/873,178 in most horticultural characteristics. However, plants of the new cultivar ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ differ in the following:
    • 1. ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ has larger foliage than ‘EC-BEGO-1901’.
    • 2. ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ is a larger plant than ‘EC-BEGO-1901’.
BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS
The accompanying photograph in FIG. 1 illustrates in full color a typical plant of ‘EC-BEGO-1902’ grown in a greenhouse. The plant is approximately 30 weeks of age in a 25 cm pot.
FIG. 2 illustrates a close up of the foliage.
The photograph was 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.
