Abstract

The International Oak Society was appointed by the International Society for Horticultural Science (ISHS) as International Cultivar Registration Authority (ICRA) for the genus Quercus in 1998. Guidelines for oak cultivar registration can be found at oaknames.org, the International Oak Society’s searchable taxonomic database that includes all names of botanic taxa and registered cultivar and Group names. This database is also accessible through the IOS home page at internationaloaksociety.org. Three new oak cultivars are described here, all from North America: Quercus ×warei T.L. Green & W.J. Hess ‘Riverbank’, Quercus alba L. ‘Pathfinder’and Quercus ×schuettei Trel. ‘Silver Shadow’.
