Abstract: A new and distinct cultivar of Chrysanthemum plant named `Jasoda Mauve`, characterized by its compact, upright, outwardly spreading and rounded plant habit; moderately vigorous growth habit; freely branching habit; dense and full plant habit; uniform, early and freely flowering habit; small decorative-type inflorescences with red purple-colored ray florets; and excellent garden performance.
Claim: It is claimed:

1. A new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant named `Jasoda Mauve` as illustrated and described.
Description: Botanical designation:Chrysanthemum.times.morifolium.

Cultivar denomination: `JASODA MAUVE`.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

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

The new Chrysanthemum plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the Inventor in Oostnieuwkerke, Belgium. The objective of the breeding program is to create new freely flowering Chrysanthemum plants with unique and attractiveray floret coloration.

The new Chrysanthemum plant is a naturally-occurring whole plant mutation of Chrysanthemum.times.morifolium `Jasoda Pink`, not patented. The new Chrysanthemum plant was discovered and selected by the Inventor as a single flowering plant fromwithin a population of plants of `Jasoda Pink` in a controlled greenhouse environment in Oostnieuwkerke, Belgium in October, 2009.

Asexual reproduction of the new Chrysanthemum plant by vegetative cuttings was first conducted in a controlled greenhouse environment in Oostnieuwkerke, Belgium in January, 2010. Asexual reproduction by cuttings has shown that the uniquefeatures of this new Chrysanthemum plant are stable and reproduced true to type in successive generations.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

Plants of the new Chrysanthemum have not been observed under all possible environmental conditions and cultural conditions. The phenotype may vary somewhat with variations in environmental conditions such as temperature, daylength and lightintensity, without, however, any variance in genotype.

The following traits have been repeatedly observed and are determined to be the unique characteristics of `Jasoda Mauve`. These characteristics in combination distinguish `Jasoda Mauve` as a new and distinct Chrysanthemum plant: 1. Compact,upright, outwardly spreading and rounded plant habit; moderately vigorous growth habit. 2. Freely branching habit; dense and full plant habit. 3. Uniform, early and freely flowering habit. 4. Small decorative-type inflorescences with redpurple-colored ray florets. 5. Excellent garden performance.

Plants of the new Chrysanthemum differ primarily from the parent, `Jasoda Pink`, primarily in ray floret color as plants of `Jasoda Pink` have soft pink-colored ray florets.

Plants of the new Chrysanthemum can also be compared to plants of Chrysanthemum.times.morifolium `PPP BELG 07`, disclosed in U.S. Plant Pat. No. 20,430. In side-by-side comparisons conducted in Oostnieuwkerke, Belgium, plants of the newChrysanthemum differed from plants of `PPP BELG 07` in the following characteristics: 1. Plants of the new Chrysanthemum were more compact than and not as open as plants of `PPP BELG 07`. 2. Plants of the new Chrysanthemum had slightly larger leavesthan plants of `PPP BELG 07`. 3. Ray florets of plants of the new Chrysanthemum were lighter in color than ray florets of plants of `PPP BELG 07`.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE PHOTOGRAPH

The accompanying photograph illustrates the overall appearance of the new Chrysanthemum plant showing the colors as true as it is reasonably possible to obtain in colored reproductions of this type. Colors in the photograph may differ slightlyfrom the color values cited in the detailed botanical description which accurately describe the colors of the new Chrysanthemum plant. The photograph comprises a side perspective view of a typical flowering plant of `Jasoda Mauve` grown in a container.

DETAILED BOTANICAL DESCRIPTION

The aforementioned photograph and following observations and measurements describe plants grown in 19-cm containers during the early autumn in an outdoor nursery in Oostnieuwkerke, Belgium and under cultural practices which approximate thosegenerally used in commercial Chrysanthemum production. During the production of the plants, day temperatures ranged from 25.degree. C. to 30.degree. C. and night temperatures ranged from 15.degree. C. to 20.degree. C. Plants were 20 weeks old whenthe photograph and detailed description were taken. In the following description, color references are made to The Royal Horticultural Society Colour Chart, 2005 Edition, except where general terms of ordinary dictionary significance are used.
