LABELLING PLANT NAMES, Labelling is considered as part of the overall presentation of the exhibit and will be judged accordingly Each piece. should include a label giving the name of the plant or plants depicted in Latin Please see below and contact the Picture. Panel Secretary picturecommittee rhs org uk for further information if required. All artwork must be labelled with the correct scientific Latin name of the plant. Genus and species should be in italics,Genus names must begin with an upper case letter. Species names must begin with a lower case letter, The cultivar name is in Roman not italics placed in single quotation marks The main words begin with an upper. case letter, The abbreviations for subspecies variety and forma subsp var and f must not be italicised. Plant family names must be italicised,Why do plants have scientific names. All living organisms have a scientific Latin name and many also have vernacular or common names The scientific name. is preferable because the common name can be ambiguous or mis leading For example the English bluebell. Hyacinthoides non scripta is a different plant to the Scottish bluebell Campanula rotundifola. How to write scientific plant names, Scientific Latin plant names must be italicised or underlined. The scientific name of a plant has two parts genus and species For example with the English common harebell the. first word Campanula is the name of the genus and the second word rotundifolia is the name of the species. Genus species,Campanula rotundifolia, The genus name always comes first and begins with an upper case letter The species name is always in lower case even. when it commemorates a country or a person such as Rosa chinensis the China rose or Rosa banksiae named for the. wife of Sir Joseph Banks, The abbreviations for subspecies variety and forma subsp var and f must be written in Roman not italic for. example Narcissus romieuxii subsp albidus Clematis montana var rubens. Artists who wish to include plant family names on their paintings should note that family names such as Campanulaceae. must be written in italics,Plant name authorities, Every scientific name is followed by the name of an authority meaning the person or persons who originally published. the name This is often abbreviated for example Campanula rotundifolia L denotes that the name was first published. by Carl Linnaeus, Inclusion of the authority name on artwork labelling is at the discretion of the artist it does not need to be included. on the labelling, A cross between plants of two different species results in a hybrid For example Lilium parkmanii is the name given to. the cross between Lilium speciosum and Lilium auratum The indicates the hybrid status and should be written as. not x and must not be italicised, Cultivar means cultivated variety Cultivar names are given to denote variation within species and that generated by. hybridisation in cultivation They are not printed in italics and should be enclosed in single quotation marks For. example Clematis Huldine or Clematis cartmanii Joe. All the main words in a cultivar name must begin with an upper case letter for exampleCampanula latifolia Roger. Wood or Campanula persicifolia Coerulea Flore Pleno Other less grammatically important words do not begin with. a capital for example Lilium Pot of Gold Lilium Musik der Nacht. Genus species Cultivar,Campanula latifolia Roger Wood. The names of cultivars are complicated by trade designations selling names which are names that are used to market. a plant when the cultivar name is considered to be unsuitable for marketing purposes for example Clematis Evijohill. has been given the trade designation JOSEPHINE Trade designations are usually written be in SMALL CAPITALS and not. italicized Trade designations must not be placed between quotes When cited together with the cultivar name the. order does not matter but generally it is preferable to put the best known name first for example. Clematis BLUE ANGEL B kitny Anio,Clematis INSPIRATION Zoin. Clematis ROSEMOOR Evipo002,Clematis Warszawska Nike MIDNIGHT SHOWERS. Clematis Helios AZTEK, For non botanists the use of cultivar names and trade designations can understandably be very confusing It is. recommended that artists should refer to and follow the RHS website or the latest edition of The RHS Plant Finder. where plant names are correctly cited, Remember that plants bought from garden centres or nurseries may be misnamed Artists should endeavour to ensure. that the names that appear on their paintings are the correct names Misnamed plants and or incorrectly labelled.
