gated foliage. BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the over all appearance of the new Hosla plant, showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproduc tions 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

of Hosla plant, botanically known as Hosla hybrid and here inafter referred to by the name ‘Justine’. The new Hosla plant is a naturally-occurring whole plant mutation of the Hosla hybrid ‘June Fever’, disclosed in US. Plant Pat. No. 15,340. The new Hosla plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor in a controlled environment in

Hosla plant.

Bameveld, The Netherlands in May, 2006. Asexual reproduction of the new Hosla plant by divisions

The photograph on the ?rst sheet comprises a side perspec tive view of a typical ?owering plant of ‘Justine’ grown in a container. The photograph on the second sheet is a close-up view of typical ?owers and leaves of ‘Justine’.

in a controlled environment in Bameveld, The Netherlands

since August, 2006, has shown that the unique features of this new Hosla plant are stable and reproduced true to type in

successive generations. SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

20

The aforementioned photographs and following observa

Plants of the new Hosla have not been observed under all

tions, measurements and values describe plants grown in containers in Bameveld, The Netherlands, under commercial

possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment and cultural prac

practice during the late summer in an outdoor nursery. Plants were two years old when the photographs and description were taken. In the following description, color references are

tices such as temperature and light intensity without, how ever, any variance in genotype. The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of ‘Justine’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Justine’ as a new

and distinct cultivar of Hosla:

made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2001

Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary 30

4. Good garden performance. Plants of the new Hosla differ from plants of the parent, ‘June Fever’, primarily in leaf coloration as leaves of plants of the new Hosla have a broader green-colored edge than leaves of plants of ‘June Fever’. In addition, plants of the new Hosla have thicker leaves than plants of ‘June Fever’. Plants of the new Hosla can be compared to plants of ‘ Sweet Innocence’, not patented. Plants of the new Hosla and

signi?cance are used.

Botanical classi?cation: Hosla hybrid cultivar Justine.

l. Outwardly spreading foliage with upright ?ower scapes. 2. Dark green and light green variegated foliage. 3. Light violet-colored ?owers that are positioned above the foliage on strong scapes.
