of the female parent selection.

plants with compact plant habit and attractive ?ower color. The new Scaevola plant originated from an open-pollina tion in Yellow Rock, New South Wales, Australia in early 2004 of a proprietary selection of Scaevola aemula identi?ed as code number 04-28, not patented, as the female, or seed, parent with an unknown proprietary selection of Scaevola aemula, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Scaevola plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single ?owering plant from within the progeny of the stated open pollination in a controlled environment inYellow Rock, New South Wales, Australia in March, 2005. Asexual reproduction of the new Scaevola plant by veg etative cuttings in a controlled environment in Yellow Rock, New South Wales, Australia since April, 2005 has shown that the unique features of this new Scaevola plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

2. Plants of the new Scaevola and the female parent selec tion differ in ?ower color as plants of the female parent selection have dark blue-colored ?owers. Plants of the new Scaevola can be compared to plants of the Scaevola aemula ‘Bonscalib’, disclosed in US. Plant Pat. No.

19,516. In side-by-side comparisons, plants of the new Scae vola differed from plants of the ‘Bonscalib’ in the following characteristics: 1 . Plants of the new Scaevola were more trailing than plants

of ‘Bonscalib’. 2. Plants of the new Scaevola were more vigorous than

plants of ‘Bonscalib’. 3. Plants of the new Scaevola had larger leaves than plants of ‘Bonscalib’. 4. Flowers of plants of the new Scaevola had broader petals than ?owers of plants of ‘Bonscalib’. 30

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

5 Flowers of plants of the new Scaevola were darker violet

in color than ?owers of plants of ‘Bonscalib’. BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

Plants of the new Scaevola have not been observed under

all possible environmental conditions and cultural practices. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in envi ronmental 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 ‘Bonsca7200’. These characteristics in combination distinguish ‘Bonsca7200’ as a new and distinct Scaevola plant:

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the over all appearance of the new Scaevola plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored repro

ductions 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

Scaevola plant.
