yellow montana

In my book of sports Emma Forster ( Forster '85) is the yellow sport 
of montana Aureomarginata as stated. The yellow sport of montana On 
Stage is Mountain Sunrise( Zilis). Again the question arises 
if you have an independent arisen yellow sport, on say montana On 
Stage, are they identical or not? I have tried to answer that 
question in the last journal. I give genetical arguments why 
all yellow sports from On Stage are identical and should not have 
separate names. This is not a theory but just facts of genetics 
applied to hosta. Yellow sports from montana On Stage or for that 
matter Grand Tiara are identical ( not only similar). This is  
because yellow sports from a variegated plant arise due to chimeral 
rearrangements ( an exchange of cells between different layers). In 
this respect Jim Wilkins disagrees in his comments ( that I did not 
see beforehand) as he suggests that  all independent sports  should 
have different names. What is your opinion?
