Re: H fortunei

the proper name H sieboldiana var fortunei
Ben, Thank you for the reply.
According to Schmid, what was once H. sieboldiana var fortunei is now
reduced to cultivar form as H. 'Tokudama'. Works for me. The
question then is which are we to think of as the "proper" name? Since
it is a hybrid, should IT be referred to as a cultivar without the inclusion
of a species name. I suppose calling it H. sieboldiana 'Tokudama'
is out since this refers to but one of the parents?
