Abstract: A new Chrysanthemum plant named `Synyel Lucien` particularly distinguished by the daisy-type flowers with yellow ray floret color, medium green foliage, fast flowering response time, good stem strength, excellent shelf-life, short and compact fleurette-type plant habit.
Claim: What is claimed is:

1. A new and distinct variety of Chrysanthemum plant named `Synyel Lucien` substantially as illustrated and described herein.
Description: Latin name of the genus and species of the plant claimed: Chrysanthemum.times.morifolium.

Varietal denomination: `Synyel Lucien`.


The present invention comprises a new Chrysanthemum, botanically known as Chrysanthemum.times.morifolium, and hereinafter referred to by the variety name `Synyel Lucien`.

`Synyel Lucien` is a product of a planned breeding program. The new cultivar has daisy-type flowers with yellow ray floret color, medium green foliage, fast flowering response time, good stem strength, excellent shelf-life, short and compactfleurette-type plant habit.

`Synyel Lucien` originated from a hybridization made in May 2004 in a controlled breeding environment in Salinas, Calif. The female parent was the unpatented proprietary plant designated `YB-A5357`, with orange flower color.

The male parent of `Synyel Lucien` was an unpatented seedling identified as `YB-A8601` with light bronze flower color. The resultant seed of this cross was sown in September 2004.

`Synyel Lucien` was selected as one flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross in the March 2005 in a controlled environment in Fort Myers, Fla.

The first act of asexual reproduction of `Synyel Lucien` was accomplished when vegetative cuttings were propagated from the initial selection in June 2005 in a controlled environment in Fort Myers, Fla.


Horticultural examination of plants grown from cuttings of the plant initiated in June 2005, and continuing thereafter, has demonstrated that the combination of characteristics as herein disclosed for `Synyel Lucien` are firmly fixed and areretained through successive generations of asexual reproduction.

`Synyel Lucien` has not been observed under all possible environmental conditions. The phenotype may vary significantly with variations in environment such as temperature, light intensity and day length.

A Plant Breeder's Right for this cultivar was applied for in Canada on Oct. 30, 2009 (#09-6773). `Synyel Lucien` has not been made publicly available more than one year prior to the filing of this application.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be basic characteristics of the new variety. The combination of these characteristics distinguishes this Chrysanthemum as a new and distinct variety.


The accompanying photographic drawing shows typical flower and foliage characteristics of `Synyel Lucien` with colors being as true as possible with an illustration of this type. The photographic drawing shows four flowering plants of the newvariety growing in a six inch pot and a close-up of the flowers.


The plant descriptions, measurements and aforementioned photographs were taken in Gilroy, Calif. in April 2010 under natural light. These plants were started and grown in Nipomo, Calif. and bought to Gilroy for descriptions and photographs. Plants were grown under conditions which approximate those generally used in commercial potted Chrysanthemum production. These plants used in the photograph and descriptions were about 10 weeks old.

Color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart (R.H.S.) 2001.
