6. Good garden performance. Plants of the new Calibrachoa canbe compared to plants of the parent selections. Plants of the new Calibrachoa differ

The present invention relates to a new and distinct Cali

brachoa plant, botanically known as Calibrachoa sp. and

primarily from plants of the parent selections in plant habit

hereinafter referred to by the name ‘Ficallinliblu’. The new Calibrachoa plant is a product of a planned breed

uniform and have larger ?owers than plants of the parent

ing program conducted by the Inventor in De Lier, The Neth erlands. The objective of the breeding program is to create new freely-branching Calibrachoa plants with compact and

selections. Plants of the new Calibrachoa canbe compared to plants of the Calibrachoa sp. ‘Filindura Pink’, disclosed in US. Plant

and ?ower siZe as plants of the new Calibrachoa are more

uniformly mounded plant habit, freely ?owering habit and attractive leaf and ?ower coloration. The new Calibrachoa plant originated from a cross-polli nation made by the Inventor in 2005 in De Lier, The Nether lands of two unnamed proprietary selections of Calibrachoa sp., not patented. The new Calibrachoa plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single ?owering plant from within the progeny of the stated cross-pollination in a con

trolled greenhouse environment in De Lier, The Netherlands. Asexual reproduction of the new Calibrachoa plant by vegetative cuttings in a controlled greenhouse environment in De Lier, The Netherlands since 2007 has shown that the unique features of this new Calibrachoa plant are stable and

reproduced true to type in successive generations.

Pat. No. 19,626. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in De Lier, The Netherlands, plants of the new Calibrachoa differed from plants of ‘Filindura Pink’ in the following char acteristics: 1. Plants of the new Calibrachoa were more trailing than and not as compact as plants of ‘Filindura Pink’. 2. Plants of the new Calibrachoa and ‘Filindura Pink’

differed in ?ower color as plants of ‘Filindura Pink’ had

red purple-colored ?owers. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH

intensity without, however, any variance in genotype. The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘Ficallinliblu’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Ficall inliblu’ as a new and distinct Calibrachoa plant:

1. Upright, outwardly spreading and uniformly mounding plant habit. 2. Moderately vigorous growth habit.
