Naming of plant breeders' rights protected plants
The names of all plants is governed by rules. Also for the naming of plant breeders' rights and trademark protected plants are guidelines.
The base consists of the name of each plant species in two parts: the genus name and the species name.
A group of plants based on common characteristics related to each other is. The first word in a plant name is the family name. This is always written with a capital.
A group of plants that have the same characteristics within a genus. Species occur in the wild (in nature) for.
The second word in a plant name is generic. This is always written with a lowercase letter.
A group of plants within a species that is always identical. Cultivars always deviate from the natural species and can be found as a seedling or mutant. This can happen anywhere, including in nature. At the time that this deviating shape is increased (it should be in order to always maintain the unique characteristics), it is a cultivar. In order to distinguish the cultivar of the species is the "inventor" of a cultivar name. The cultivar name is inextricably linked with the relevant plant.
Cultivar is an abbreviation for "cultivated variety" (cultivar). Another word for cultivar 'race'.
The third part of a plant name is the cultivar name. Cultivar names are always enclosed in single quotes senior written and each word is capitalized (except adverbs and articles).
If a plant breeders court is protected behind the cultivar name PBR put (short for "Plant Breeders Rights"). Pbr is called "small caps" and "superscript" put. In practice, it is also called the ® symbol, but this means "registered trademark" and is the symbol for a U.S. registered (registered) trademark. It has no legal validity, especially when it comes to indicate that a plant breeders judicial protection. In America, plants are patented. In that case, after the cultivar name PP put. This stands for "plant patent" or "patent protected".
Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy'PBR - Hydrangea is the genus
- Paniculata is the generic name
- 'Renhy' is the cultivar name
Trade names and trademarks
In addition to the cultivar name in some cases, there is a commercial name given to a plant. If this at a national or international trademark registered, it is a brand. If this name is not registered, but just "use" is a trade name. Brands are very useful when it comes to series of cultivars. Brands are usually called "small caps" or written in capital letters, without further additions in the form of symbols ® and the like. Scientifically trademarks and trade names in parentheses after the cultivar name written.
Commercially, it is better for the cultivar name, slightly smaller in brackets behind the brand or business writing.
Hydrangea paniculata 'Renhy'PBR (VANILLE FRAISE) - scientifically correct
Hydrangea paniculata VANILLE FRAISE (Renhy'PBR) - commercially desirable
