Abstract: A new Chrysanthemum plant named `Symarj Col` particularly distinguished by the long-lasting coral-red inflorescences, medium green foliage, rounded and mounded plant habit, and a natural flowering season of about early October.
Claim: What is claimed is:

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

Varietal denomination: `Symarj Col`.


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

`Symarj Col` is a product of a planned breeding program. The new cultivar has long lasting coral-red inflorescences, medium green foliage, rounded and mounded plant habit, and a natural flowering season of about early October.

`Symarj Col` originated from a hybridization made in October 2005 in a controlled breeding environment in Tenjo, Columbia. The female parent was the proprietary plant designated `03-M341`, unpatented, with lavender inflorescences, smaller plantsize and a natural season flowering response that is two weeks faster.

The male parent of `Symarj Col` was an proprietary plant designated as `00-M401` with a similar inflorescence color, more disc florets, a color that doesn't last as long, and a natural season flowering response that is two weeks faster. Theresultant seed was sown in June 2006 in Alva Fla.

`Symarj Col` was selected as one flowering plant within the progeny of the stated cross in the November 2006 in a controlled environment in Alva, Fla.

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


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

`Symarj Col` 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. 10-6932). `Symarj Col` 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 `Symarj Col` 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 16 weeks old grown in Monroeville, N.J. in an outdoor trial. One rooted cuttings grown in a nine inch pot with no terminal pinching of the apices. The photograph was taken in mid October 2010 inNew Jersey.

The plant descriptions and measurements were taken in Gilroy, Calif. in early October 2010 under natural light. Plants were grown in an 8 inch pot with only one plant and grown in a greenhouse. These plants used in the descriptions were about16 weeks old.
