  Cultivar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Cultivars may be either particularly desirable selections from populations of a single species, or hybrids between species.
Cultivar epithets published before 1 January 1959 were often given a Latin form and can be readily confused with the specific epithets in botanical names: after that date, new cultivar epithets must be in a modern vernacular language to distinguish them from botanical epithets.
Cultivars that have originated as hybrids of different species are exotic, as is a plant from a different continent, or even a different part of the same country.

 Cultivar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
In botany, a cultivar is a cultivated selection of a plant species that is vegetatively propagated, i.e, a clone.
Cultivars are identified by uniquely distinguishing names, which may be registered and trademarked.
Names of cultivars are regulated by the International Code for the Nomenclature of Cultivated Plants (ICNCP) and registered with an International Cultivar Registration Authority and conform to the rules of the ISHS Commission Nomenclature and Cultivar Registration.

 Purple Loosestrife Cultivars   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
No cultivar was found to be female sterile, and seed germination rates were between 30-100%, with the majority of germination rates over 50% (Anderson and Ascher, 1993).
These cultivars are a source of viable pollen and viable seed, and they will cross with wild populations of loosestrife.
A garden population that does not produce seed could be a population of cultivars or clones with the same-length style morphology growing in the same area.

The cultivar is a horticultural name that is appended to the botanical name and is used to identify a named hybrid.
Some cultivars are even trademarked names -- this is especially true for plants that produce edible food crops.
When the botanical name is assembled for plants with a named cultivar they are surrounded by single quotes and are set off from the name by using a non-italicized font.

 Cultivar Registry Information
International Cultivar Registration Authorities (ICRAs) are appointed by the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) through its Commission for Nomenclature and Registration and are contracted to operate within the provisions of the current edition of the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants (ICNCP).
The importance of horticultural taxonomy is in the resolution of the often complicated identification and nomenclatural problems that arise as a consequence of makeup of the contributing groups; specialist amateurs, the nursery trade and plant societies.
Cultivars of Nelumbo are registered first "to prevent, as far as possible, names already appropriated being given to new seedlings", and secondly to prevent the use of names which so closely resemble existing names that they would cause confusion.

 Naming a Cultivar ?
Nothing can be used that is likely to cause confusion (eg similarity to existing cultivar names within the denomination class, place names if more than one form of the plant exists there) or which exaggerate the merits of the cultivar.
The cultivar epithet can only be used once within a denomination class (the genus).
7.1 The name of a cultivar or Group consists of the name of the genus or lower taxonomic unit to which it is assigned together with a cultivar or Group epithet.

 How to name a new cultivar
A single plant is not a cultivar: a cultivar is a group of individual plants which collectively is distinct from any other, which is uniform in its overall appearance and which remains stable in its attributes.
Cultivar epithets are always written within single quotation marks (never double quotation marks) so that they stand out from the rest of the name and so that their status is obvious.
Check that the originator of the cultivar agrees with the proposed name (and its spelling) that you are promoting; if the originator does not, the name may have to be rejected later in favour of the originator's choice.

This cultivar is currently used by the Florida sugarcane industry as the standard for the minimum performance acceptable for a new cultivar to be released.
Some cultivars produce high sugar early which declines with bloom, some reach their peak later in the season, while others maintain a relatively high sugar content for an extended period.
If a cultivar's optimum harvest season is limited, but it fills an industry need for a cultivar during that time frame, it would be considered an advantage.

 Heliconia Cultivar Registration   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
A new heliconia cultivar may be discovered in the wild, appear spontaneously as a seedling or mutation in the garden, be purposely cultivated from seed, or result from plant breeding efforts.
A new cultivar should not be a single plant, but should first be propagated to confirm that its unique characteristics are uniform and stable in all individuals.
A cultivar name which is established and named in accordance with the ICNCP rules is said to be "accepted", and should not be used again as a name for a different heliconia cultivar.

 AHS Cultivar Registration Information
Cultivars which repeat in one location may not do so in another, as repeat bloom is often influenced by climate and weather conditions.
A cultivar name should not be published if it may give the impression that the cultivar has one or more attributes that it does not possess.
A cultivar name should not be published if its epithet may give the impression that the cultivar is derived from or related to another when this is not the case.

These cultivars are rated as early, midseason, or late, according to when they bear (see Table 8.1).
The early cultivars may be more subject to frost injury because they bloom earlier, and the opened blossom is the stage of fruit development most susceptible to frost injury.
These cultivars bear two crops during the year, and generally are not as high in quality or as productive as the day-neutral types.

 Brooklyn Botanic Garden: Cultivar Crazy—Preserving the Genetic Heritage of Plants
Consequently, it's worth exploring whether the new native cultivars are likely to have such a salutary effect.
Cultivars (the plants that have additional names in single quotes after the two-part botanical names) are prized for their unusual characteristics, and the surest way for a grower to guarantee that you'll get the desired traits of the parent plants is to propagate them asexually, typically from cuttings (as opposed to sexually, from seed).
You could say that cultivars, like Holstein cows, quarter horses, and chihuahuas, are domesticated organisms, "plant pets." They're created when human beings apply artificial selection pressures to control the species' evolutionary course.

Cultivar epithets are always written within single quotation marks so that they stand out from the rest of the name and so that their status is obvious.
Remember that cultivar names, by their very definition, are available for all to use and that the names themselves offer no protection if you wish to obtain intellectual property rights on your new cultivar.
Nowadays, new cultivar epithets must be in a modern language and they must be unique within the so-called denomination class which is usually the genus.
