Botanical designation: Dracaena steudneri.
Cultivar denomination: ‘CINTHO LEMON’.
The present invention relates to a new and distinct Dracaena plant, botanically known as Dracaena steudneri and hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Cintho Lemon’.
The new Dracaena plant is a naturally-occurring whole plant mutation of the Dracaena steudneri ‘Jelle’, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 12,677. The new Dracaena plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor from within a population of plants of ‘Jelle’ in a controlled greenhouse environment in La Guacima, Costa Rica in July, 2008.
Asexual reproduction of the new Dracaena plant by cuttings in La Guacima, Costa Rica since September, 2008 has shown that the unique features of this new Dracaena plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.
Plants of the new Dracaena have not been observed under all possible 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 ‘Cintho Lemon’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Cintho Lemon’ as a new and distinct Dracaena plant:
Plants of the new Dracaena differ from plants of the parent, ‘Jelle’, primarily in leaf color as plants of ‘Jelle’ have leaves with narrow yellow green-colored centers and broad dark green-colored boarders.
Plants of the new Dracaena can be compared to plants of the Dracaena fragrans ‘Massangeana’, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands, plants of the new Dracaena differed primarily from plants of ‘Massangeana’ in the following characteristics:
The accompanying photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Dracaena 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 Dracaena plant.
The photograph on the first sheet comprises a side perspective view of a typical plant of ‘Cintho Lemon’ grown in a container.
The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of the upper and lower leaf surfaces of a typical plant of ‘Cintho Lemon’.
The aforementioned photographs and following observations and measurements describe plants grown during the winter in 19-cm containers, with three plants per container, in a glass-covered greenhouse in Naaldwijk, The Netherlands and under cultural practices typical of commercial Dracaena plant production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 30° C., night temperatures ranged from 18° C. to 21° C. and light levels ranged from 10 to 20 klux. Plants were six months old when the photographs and the botanical description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, Fifth Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
