don't know the anwser.....

Sea Dragon and Dragon Lady....

Both Seaver Intro's.... Are they same or different.  

I have Dragon Lady but know nothing about Sea Dragon.



Mike and All,
I have all three names, Dragon Lady, Sea Dragon And Sea Lady Dragon listed in 
my data bank.  They were recorded at different times but all show Mildred 
Seaver as Originator. All are listed large, or medium large and the plant 
color is listed as green.  My best guess is they are all one and the same 
hosta.  I will call 'Sea Dragon' as being the correct one as it is also 
listed in the 'iac' list. Your guess then could be as good as mine.

All three names are on 'not registered' hostas.  So anybody can use the names 
up to the time they want to register it.  It will be interesting to find out 
if these new hostas with the name Dragon Lady , etc., are from Seavers or 
just another introduction of one kind or another.  The data bank reveals many 
instances where there are several plants with the same name.

One of the problems that we face is the mistaken spelling, etc., of names.  
Early this week someone submitted a picture of 'Regal Splendens.'  However 
the picture was of 'Regal Splendor.' Just in case some wayward data collector 
records this error I shall add it to my list of 'errors in spelling.'  Who 
knows, It could be next as 'Regal Splender,' or 'Regal Splendour,'  Now 
wouldn't that be splendiferous?

For good reading watch for Warren Pollock's column called 'What's in a Hosta 
Name' that appears in many American Hosta Journals.
