Abstract: A new Chrysanthemum plant named `Sykes Hored` particularly distinguished by the long-lasting orange-red inflorescence color, medium green foliage, good mounding plant habit, and a natural flowering season response that is about mid September.
Claim: What is claimed is:

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

Varietal denomination: `Syhes Hored`.


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

`Syhes Hored` is a product of a planned breeding program. The new cultivar has long-lasting orange-red inflorescence color, medium green foliage, good mounding plant habit, and a natural flowering season response that is about mid September.

`Syhes Hored` originated from a hybridization made in December 2006 in a controlled breeding environment in Tenjo, Colombia. The female parent was the proprietary plant designated `Yobrandi`, U.S. Plant Pat. No. 16,134, with lighter redinflorescence color, more width to the plant habit and 7-10 days slower flowering response in the fall in the north.

The male parent of `Syhes Hored` identified as `Cyclops`, an unpatented variety, with smaller, lighter red inflorescences, more disk florets, less mounding and a bit more upright plant habit and a natural flowering season response that is 5-7days slower. The resultant seed was sown in June 2007 in Alva, Fla. USA.

`Syhes Hored` was selected as one flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross in the November 2007 in a controlled environment in Alva, Fla.

The first act of asexual reproduction of `Syhes Hored` was accomplished when vegetative cuttings were propagated from the initial selection in December 2007 in a controlled environment in Alva, Fla.


Horticultural examination of plants grown from cuttings of the plant initiated in December 2007, and continuing thereafter, has demonstrated that the combination of characteristics as herein disclosed for `Syhes Hored` are firmly fixed and areretained through successive generations of asexual reproduction.

`Syhes Hored` 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 Apr. 9, 2010 (No. 10-6931). `Syhes Hored` 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 `Syhes Hored` with colors being as true as possible with an illustration of this type. The photographic drawing shows a flowering potted plant of the newvariety.


The plant used for the photographs was about 12 weeks old, grown in Monroeville, N.J., in an outdoor trial. Rooted cuttings were grown in a nine inch pot with no terminal pinching of the apices. The photograph was taken in mid-September 2010in New Jersey.

The plant descriptions and measurements were taken in Gilroy, Calif. in May 2010 under natural light. Plants were grown under conditions which approximate those generally used for potted chrysanthemum trials in a greenhouse. These plants usedin the descriptions were about 10 weeks old.
