Abstract: A new and distinct cultivar of Impatiens plant named `KLENI05080`, characterized by its upright and outwardly spreading to trailing growth habit; rounded plant habit; freely branching habit; dark green-colored leaves; freely flowering habit; relatively large red purple-colored flowers; and good garden performance.
Claim: It is claimed:

1. A new and distinct Impatiens plant named `KLENI05080` as illustrated and described.
Description: Botanical designation:Impatiens hawkeri.

Cultivar denomination: `KLENI05080`.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of New Guinea Impatiens, botanically known as Impatiens hawkeri and hereinafter referred to by the name `KLENI05080`.

The new Impatiens is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Stuttgart, Germany. The objective of the breeding program is to create new freely-branching New Guinea Impatiens cultivars with medium plant habit, earlyand freely flowering habit, and large and attractive flowers.

The new Impatiens originated from a cross-pollination made by the Inventor during the summer of 2002 in Stuttgart, Germany of a proprietary selection of Impatiens hawkeri identified as code number T 056, not patented, as the female, or seed,parent with a proprietary selection of Impatiens hawkeri identified as code number U 185, not patented, as the male, or pollen, parent. The new Impatiens was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant within the progeny of thestated cross-pollination in a controlled environment in Stuttgart, Germany in May, 2003.

Asexual reproduction of the new Impatiens by terminal cuttings in a controlled environment in Stuttgart, Germany since July, 2003, has shown that the unique features of this new Impatiens are stable and reproduced true to type in successivegenerations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

The cultivar `KLENI05080` has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environment and cultural practices such as temperature and light intensity without, however, anyvariance in genotype.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of `KLENI05080`. These characteristics in combination distinguish `KLENI05080` as a new and distinct cultivar of Impatiens: 1. Upright andoutwardly spreading to trailing growth habit; rounded plant habit. 2. Freely branching habit. 3. Dark green-colored leaves. 4. Freely flowering habit. 5. Relatively large red purple-colored flowers. 6. Good garden performance.

Plants of the new Impatiens can be compared to plants of the female parent selection. Plants of the new Impatiens differ from plants of the female parent selection in the following characteristics: 1. Plants of the new Impatiens flower earlierthan plants of the female parent selection. 2. Plants of the new Impatiens and the female parent selection differ in flower color.

Plants of the new Impatiens can be compared to plants of the male parent selection. Plants of the new Impatiens differ primarily from plants of the male parent selection in flower color as plants of the male parent selection havelavender-colored flowers.

Plants of the new Impatiens can be compared to plants of the Impatiens selection S 608, not patented. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Stuttgart, Germany, plants of the new Impatiens differed from plants of the selection S 608 in thefollowing characteristics: 1. Plants of the new Impatiens flowered earlier than plants of the selection S 608. 2. Plants of the new Impatiens were more freely flowering than plants of the selection S 608.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH

The accompanying colored photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new Impatiens, showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightlyfrom the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Impatiens. The photograph comprises a side perspective view of typical flowering plants of `KLENI05080` grown in a container.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The photograph and following observations, measurements and values describe plants grown in Stuttgart, Germany, in containers and under commercial practice during the summer in a polypropylene-covered shadehouse with day temperatures ranging from15.degree.
