Abstract: A new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant named `Danat2l4` characterized by having inflorescence with oblong shaped, yellow ray florets, and bell shaped, yellow disc florets; flowering time of 7.5 weeks; short day plant; and vigorous growth habit.
Claim: I claim:

1. A new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant named `Danat214`, substantially as illustrated and described herein.
Description: Botanicaldesignation: Chrysanthemum morifolium.

Variety denomination: `Danat214`.


The present invention relates to a new and distinct cultivar of Chrysanthemum plant, botanically known as Chrysanthemum morifolium, hereinafter referred to by the cultivar name `Danat214`.

The new cultivar `Danat214` is a product of a planned mutant selection and monitoring program in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel, with the objective of finding color mutants of the Chrysanthemum morifolium cultivar `Danchryat`.

The new cultivar `Danat214` originated from induced mutation on a single flowering plant of the Chrysanthemum morifolium cultivar `Danchryat` (patented, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 15,045), and grown in a controlled, cultivated environment in MoshavMishmar Hashiva, Israel. The parental cultivar `Danchryat` is also known by the commercial variety name Atlantis.

The new cultivar `Danat214` was discovered and selected by the inventor, Gabriel Danziger, as an induced whole plant mutation of `Danchryat` in January of 2003 in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel. The mutation arose by radiation.

Asexual reproduction of the new cultivar by stem cutting was first performed in January of 2004 in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel, and has demonstrated that the combination of characteristics as herein disclosed for the new cultivar are firmlyfixed and retained through successive generations of asexual reproduction. The new cultivar reproduces true to type.


The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be unique characteristics of `Danat214` which in combination distinguish this Chrysanthemum as a new and distinct cultivar: 1. Oblong shaped, yellow ray florets, and bellshaped, yellow disk florets; 2. Flowering time of 7.5 weeks; 3. Short day plant; and 4. Vigorous growth habit.

Plants of the new cultivar `Danat214` differ from plants of the parental cultivar `Danchryat` as described in Table 1.

TABLE-US-00001 TABLE 1 `Danchryat` Characteristic `Danat214` (patented, PP15,045) Inflorescence Diameter 9.5 cm. 9.5 cm. Flowering Time 7.5 weeks 7.5 weeks Growth Potency Medium-High Medium-High Ray Floret Color Yellow, RHS 6-B White, RHS155-D Disk Floret Color Yellow-green, Yellow-green, (when opening) RHS N144-A RHS 146-B

Of the many commercial cultivars known to the present inventor, the most similar in comparison to `Danat214` is the parental cultivar `Danchryat` as described in Table 1.


The accompanying photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new Chrysanthemum cultivar `Danat214` showing the colors as true as is reasonably possible with colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photographs may differslightly from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description, which accurately describe the colors of `Danat214`.

FIG. 2 shows a close-up view of an inflorescence of `Danat214`.


`Danat214` has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype of the new cultivar may vary with variations in environment such as temperature, light intensity, and daylength without any change in the genotype of theplant.

The aforementioned photographs, together with the following observations, measurements and values describe the new cultivar `Danat214` as grown in a greenhouse (confirmed) in Moshav Mishmar Hashiva, Israel, under conditions which closelyapproximate those generally used in commercial practice. Plants of `Danat214` are mainly grown in greenhouses, but can also be grown outdoors during the summer. The recommended temperature range for growing plants of `Danat214` in a greenhouse are: daytemperature range of C. to C., and evening temperature range of C. to C. For premium growth conditions, plants of `Danat214` are irrigated and fertilized on a regular basis using moderate regim. Plants of`Danat214` are treated with the growth retardant, Alar (B-Nine), at a concentration of 3 gr/L.

Color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart (R.H.S.), ed. 2001, except where general colors of ordinary significance are used. Color values were taken under daylight conditions at approximately 12:00 noon in MoshavMishmar Hashiva, Israel. The age of the plant described is 11 weeks from planting.
