A variety is a subset of a species grouping plants that differ considerably from others in the species, with these differences often staying true when plants are grown from seed. An example is the pink-flowering form of flowering dogwood (Cornus florida var. rubra). A cultivated variety or cultivar refers to plants chosen for specific traits and cultivated so that offspring retain those traits, either through asexual reproduction with rooted cuttings, grafting, or budding; or sexual reproduction with controlled crosses with known parents.
This local variation in tree names led to the creation of standard names, also called scientific names or Latin names because they use Latin words. These Latin names are used world-wide to describe a particular species. Latin names are always underlined or italicized to set them apart. The Latin name for Gambel oak is Quercus gambelii. The first word, in this case Quercus, is the genus or generic name (plural of genus is genera) of the tree. A genus is a broad group of species that are alike in some ways but not enough to be the same species.
