Cultivated plant series
Aquilegia vulgaris var. stellata 'Nora Barlow' (Barlow Series)
Series names are increasingly popular marketing devices, often, but not always, linking together plants that have similar characteristics. The plants concerned are often highly bred and produced in large numbers, such as bedding plants.
There are no rules governing Series names, but when using them in plant names the word Series should always be included and if used with a cultivar name, enclosed within brackets. The Series name may appear before or after the cultivar name.
Nemesia (Nuvo Series) ‘Nuvo Blue’ or Nemesia ‘Nuvo Blue’ (Nuvo Series)
NOTE: The components of a Cultivated Plant Series can change from year to year, and any mixtures based on these Series may vary in the proportions of the individual members of the Series. These mixtures can be referred to adding the word ‘mixed’ after the Series name, for example Aquilegia vulgaris Barlow Series, mixed.
