Latin name of the genus and species: Ipomoea batatas.
Variety denomination: ‘IPOSGLGRE’.
The new variety originated from a commercial breeding program under the direction of the inventor, Paul A. Talmadge. The crossing resulting in the new cultivar was made in Fall of 2007, with the seed parent, an unpatented, unnamed proprietary seedling and the pollen parent, also an unpatented, unnamed proprietary seedling. The new variety was discovered by the inventor in April of 2008 at a commercial greenhouse in Lompoc, Calif.
After selecting and isolating the new cultivar, asexual reproduction of the new cultivar ‘IPOSGLGRE’ was first performed in a commercial research greenhouse in Lompoc, Calif. during June of 2008. ‘IPOSGLGRE’ has since produced several generations and has shown that the unique features of this cultivar are stable and reproduced true to type. Asexual reproduction of the new variety is by vegetative cuttings.
The cultivar ‘IPOSGLGRE’ 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 ‘IPOSGLGRE.’ These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘IPOSGLGRE’ as a new and distinct Ipomoea cultivar:
Plants of the new cultivar ‘IPOSGLGRE’ are similar to the seed parent in most horticultural characteristics. However, ‘IPOSGLGRE’ differs in producing cordate shaped foliage that is characteristically light green in color, whereas the seed parent has palmately shaped, deep purple foliage.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘IPOSGLGRE’ are similar to the pollen parent in most horticultural characteristics. However, ‘IPOSGLGRE’ produces a well-branched, plant with a bush shaped habit whereas the pollen parent has a vining plant habit, with less branching.
Plants of the new cultivar ‘IPOSGLGRE’ are best compared to the commercial variety Ipomoea batatas ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’ U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,028. Plants of ‘IPOSGLGRE’ are similar to plants of ‘Sweet Caroline Light Green’ in most horticultural characteristics, however, plants of ‘IPOSGLGRE’ have a different shaped foliage, smaller foliage and better branching characteristics.

In the following description, color references are made to Pantone Formula Guide Solid Matte, First Edition 2000-2001, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used. The following observations and measurements describe ‘IPOSGLGRE’ plants grown during the Summer months in a greenhouse in Lompoc, Calif., under bright, unshaded conditions. Average day temperatures were approximately 26° C. and the average night temperature was approximately 18° C. No artificial light, photoperiodic treatments or chemical treatments were given to the plants. Measurements and numerical values represent averages of typical plant types.
