Interesting Notes

A note concerning the nomenclature of this Carex: The proper name of this Carex is Carex laxiculmus 'Hobb'. The trademarked name is Bunny Blue. Oregon State website has an explination we like:A cultivar name is considered descriptive of the plant, and it may registered with the International Code of Nomenclature. A trademark name cannot be used in the Code of Nomenclature. Thus, a unique or novel name must be created in addition to the cultivar name to establish a trademark. Trademark names are considered "brand names", similar to Air Jordan being a brand of athletic shoes, and have no taxonomic validity. Furthermore, if a trademark name is used in international registers or printed matter as a cultivar name, the name becomes generic and losses the protection status for the inventor (breeder).
Thus, a trademarked plant often may have a trademark name and a cultivar name. In this case, the cultivar name is sometimes considered a "nonsense" name in that it is rarely used in commerce. The trademark name is the name promoted commercially. However, the so-called nonsense cultivar name is the name used in the Code of Nomenclature
