Variety Description

Variety used for comparison: 'Balangimpu' (AngelMist Purple Improved)

Summary: 'Anblauzwei' is a taller and narrower plant which is more upright and has fewer flowering branches than 'Balangimpu'. 'Anblauzwei' has longer leaves, longer racemes, larger flowers and longer pedicels than 'Balangimpu'.


'Anblauzwei' is an angelonia variety with upright growth habit. Pubescence on the branches is mostly absent with only a few hairs at the base of the stems. The leaves are lanceolate in shape with an acute shaped apex and acute or round shaped base. The leaf margins are serrate. Colour of the leaves is medium to dark green on the upper surface and light to medium green on the lower surface. There is very sparse pubescence on the upper surface of the leaves and absent to very sparse pubescence on the lower surface. Glossiness of the upper surface of the leaf is weak to moderate. The leaves have no petiole.

'Anblauzwei' has a compound raceme type of inflorescence with the flowers located in the leaf axils. The number of flowers per axil is one. The angle of the pedicel in relation to the peduncle is right angled. The flowers are dark violet in colour with a white palate.

Origin & Breeding History: 'Anblauzwei' is the product of a planned breeding program which took place at Elsner pac Jungplanzen, Dresden, Germany in July to September of 2000. The objectives of the program were to create new, compact angelonia varieties that have good branching characteristics, flower early and have desirable flower colours. It originated from a combination breeding within a breeding group designated 'OK-85'. A pollen mixture from the breeding group was used to pollinate all plants within the group. In June of 2001, 'Anblauzwei' was selected by the breeder at a greenhouse in Dresden, Germany based on its compact and erect growth habit, good branching characteristics, early flowering and flower number.

Tests & Trials: Tests and trials for 'Anblauzwei' were conducted in a greenhouse during the summer of 2003 at BioFlora Inc. in St. Thomas, Ontario. The trial consisted of 15 plants per variety grown from cuttings rooted in week 11 and transplanted into 11cm pots at week 17. All colour characteristics were determined using the 2001 Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) colour chart and measured characteristics were based on ten plant measurements.
