Abstract: A new and distinct of Mandevilla plant denominated `Hannyajisenred6106`. It has upright and vining plant habit, relatively small glossy foliage, freely branching habit, freely flowering habit. The plant is in full flower around Mother's Day.
Claim: What is claimed is:

1. A new and distinct Mandevilla plant named `Hannyajisenred6106` as illustrated and described.
Description: All content ofJapanese application No. 22769, filed on Jul. 17, 2008 is incorporated herein by reference.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

In May, 2004, to obtain this variety, a red-based nameless variety of a culture line possessed by Applicant was crossbred with mixed pollens of nameless varieties of a culture line possessed by Applicant in a farm owned by Applicant inYusui-cho, Aira-gun, Kagoshima, Japan. Compared to `Hannyajisenred6106`, the red-based nameless variety had waved petals and slightly larger flowers. The mixed pollens were obtained from several nameless varieties such as a pink-based variety, adeep-red-based variety, and a rose-based variety.

In February, 2005, a plant was grown through the above crossbred and a resultant seed was planted in soil on the farm owned by Applicant in Yusui-cho, Aira-gun, Kagoshima, Japan, to grow (germinate) and then bloom. This planting was carried outto expect that some varied plant could be obtained.

In April, 2006, among several hundreds of the flowering plants, some compact plants having slightly small flowers, bright color and not-waved petals appeared. Then, one of these plants was selected and a branch (stem) thereof was removed andinsterted in soil on the farm owned by Applicant in Yusui-cho, Aira-gun, Kagoshima, Japan, to grow (cutting, i.e., vegetative reproduction) and such a vegetative reproduction was repeated for propagation.

In June, 2007, the culture was completed after ensuring uniformity and stability. In other words, it was confirmed that the plant having slightly small flowers, bright color and not-waved petals, which was `Hannyajisenred6106`, could beobtained with uniformity and stability, and the above repetition was completed.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

1. Upright and vining plant habit. 2. Relatively small glossy foliage. 3. Freely branching habit. 4. Freely flowering habit. 5. Being in full flower around Mother's Day.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPHS

The accompanying colored photographs illustrate the overall appearance of the new cultivar, showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photographs may differ slightlyfrom the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the actual colors of the new Mandevilla.

FIG. 1 is a view of the plant body, wherein the plant is 14 months old after the above insertion in a soil of the branch.

FIG. 2 is a close-up view of the flower, wherein the plant is 14 months old after the above insertion in a soil of the branch.

FIG. 3 is a diagrammatic view of the plant's flower, wherein the plant is 14 months old after the above insertion in a soil of the branch.
