TRADEMARKED HOSTAS

Hosta Trade Names

Trade names are sometimes used in the nursery industry as common names for various hosta cultivars. These names should be in all capital letters and quotation marks should not be used. However, they often are improperly written with single quotes like cultivar names. Here are the most commonly found trade names.

Hosta Trademarks

A hosta name is occasionally trademarked and is indicated so by using "TM" after the name. If a trademark name is filed with the USPTO, then a ® symbol is shown afterward. Trademarked names are generally capitalized, just like trade names. Below is a list of names which have been trademarked, including some which have been dropped.
