Variety Description

Variety used for comparison: 'Elsa Spath'

Summary: 'Evipo019' has ovate sepals that are narrower than the sepals of 'Elsa Spath' which are elliptic in shape. Although the two varieties have a similar main flower colour, 'Evipo019' has two colours on the lower side of the sepals, whereas 'Elsa Spath' has three colours on the lower side. The sepals of 'Evipo019' have a moderately undulating margin, while the sepals of 'Elsa Spath' have very weak undulation along the margin.


PLANT: climbing, weak to medium vigour, medium to dense pubescence on young shoot

LEAVES: ternate
BASAL LEAFLET: ovate, acute to cuspidate apex, obtuse to cordate base, entire margin, no lobing, light green on upper side, no variegation, absent to weak rugosity

FLOWERS: solitary and clustered arrangement, upwards orientation, single flower type, rotate shape, concave in cross section, absent to very weak fragrance
SEPALS: six to eight, overlapping, ovate, concave in cross section, moderately reflexed in longitudinal section, cuspidate apex, type two base, medium undulation on margin, no twisting along longitudinal axis
SEPAL UPPER SIDE: two colours, blue violet main colour, violet secondary colour in central bar pattern
SEPAL LOWER SIDE: two colours, blue violet main colour, white secondary colour in central bar pattern

STAMEN: white filament with purple towards apex, reddish purple anthers
PISTIL: cream coloured stigma, cream coloured style (with green tones)

FLOWERING: on previous and current year's growth, late spring to early summer

Origin & Breeding History: 'Evipo019' originated from a controlled crossing between two unnamed seedlings in Guernsey, UK, during the spring of 1995. The resulting seeds were germinated in January of 1996 and the seedlings were evaluated under controlled conditions during the following summer. After the initial evaluation of the seedlings, the new variety was selected and assigned a breeding code, and it was reproduced by asexual propagation from vegetative cuttings. The breeding objective was to create a new variety with a compact free flowering habit for small containers, repeat flowering habit and good flowering as a young plant.

Tests & Trials: Trials for 'Evipo019' were conducted during the spring and summer of 2008 in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trials included 6 plants of each variety. Bare-rooted plants were planted in 4.5 inch pots on December 10, 2006 and grown in a polyhouse. All plants were transplanted in the field on May 29, 2007, spaced 2 feet apart and trained to grow along a trellis. Observations and measurements were taken from 10 plant parts of each variety on June 27, 2008. All colour measurements were made using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) Colour Chart.
