Plant Select Plant Native Origins

Taxonomy for scientific names goes as follows- the genus & species are italicized. Genus is capitalized, species is not. The cultivar is in half quotes ‘XxYy’.
Patent numbers are superscript beginning with PP and not italicized. Trademarked names cannot be the same as the cultivar name; 
therefore, Plant Select® utilizes a coding system when creating a unique cultivar name where appropriate.
For reference- Genus species ‘Cultivar’ PP patent number
