Anthurium plant named ‘ANTHGLYNT’
A new Anthurium plant named ‘ANTHGLYNT’ particularly distinguished by having very shiny and blistered, bright red, cordate and very durable spathes that retain the original color for a very long period of time, spathes positioned high above the foliage, white spadices with yellow-green tips, deltoid and durable leaves, early and rich flowering continuously throughout the year, and a plant height of 21.0 cm to 26.0 cm is disclosed.
- 1. A new and distinct variety of Anthurium plant named ‘
, substantially as illustrated and described herein.
Genus and species: Anthurium andraeanum L.
Variety denomination: ‘ANTHGLYNT’.
The present invention comprises a new and distinct variety of Anthurium, botanically known as Anthurium andraeanum L., and hereinafter referred to by the variety name ‘ANTHGLYNT’. The new Anthurium plant is a product of a planned breeding program conducted by the inventor in Bleiswijk, the Netherlands. The objective of this breeding program was to create a new 21.0 cm to 26.0 cm height plant with very shiny and blistered, bright red, cordate and very durable spathes.
The new variety originated from a cross-pollination made in February 2011 in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. The female parent was a red Anthurium pot plant designated ‘11125-01’ (unpatented), and the male parent was a red Anthurium plant designated ‘16154-01’ (unpatented).
A single plant was selected from the progeny of the stated cross in November 2012. Asexual reproduction of the new variety by tissue culture in 2015 in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands, has demonstrated that the new variety reproduces true to type with all of the characteristics, as herein described, firmly fixed and retained through successive generations.
Plant Breeder'"'"'s Rights for this variety have been applied for in the European Union on Nov. 27, 2017. ‘ANTHGLYNT’ has not been made publicly available or sold anywhere in the world more than one year prior to the effective filing date of this application.
The following are the most outstanding and distinguishing characteristics of this new variety when grown under normal horticultural practices in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands:
- 1) Very shiny and blistered, bright red, cordate spathes;
- 2) White spadices with yellow-green tips;
- 3) Green, deltoid leaves; and
- 4) Spathes positioned high above the foliage.
This new Anthurium plant is illustrated by the accompanying photographs which show the overall plant habit including blooms, bud and foliage of the plant; the colors shown are as true as can be reasonably obtained by conventional photographic procedures. The photographs are of a 28-week old plant grown in a greenhouse in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands, in October 2018. Colors in the photographs may differ from the color values cited in the detailed botanical description, which accurately describe the actual colors of the new variety.
The following detailed description sets forth the distinctive characteristics of ‘ANTHGLYNT’. The data which define these characteristics were collected from asexual reproductions carried out in Bleiswijk, The Netherlands. The plant history was taken on 28-week old plants which were planted from tissue culture in 9 centimeter (diameter) pots and grown in a glass greenhouse between 19° C. and 24° C. Observations were made in October 2018. Color readings were taken under 5000 lux natural light in the greenhouse. Color references are primarily to The R.H.S. Colour Chart of The Royal Horticultural Society of London (R.H.S.) (2015).
