There are two excellent articles on plant trademarks available.  One is by CH
Falstad, published in Plants, an British Journal, which most of you probably don't
have access to but is very interesting.  The other is by Tony Avent and is posted on
his web site www.plantdel.com.

What they both boil down to is that trademark names, in the case of hostas at least,
are bogus and have no value, and probably cannot be enforced.
