Re: Will the real registrar stand up

Clyde must be careful of his facts, as well he knows.  The International
Registrar for any genus is appointed to register the epithets (names) of the
plants of that genus as and when such epithets are correctly published.  The
publication can be in journal or catalogue or other printing and could be by
an agreed application to the Registrar.  The International Code clearly
states that the acceptance by the Registrar of an epithet does NOT imply
judgement on the distinctness of a cultivar, or its merit.  David
Stephenson, as the appointee of the International Registration Authority for
Hosta (which happens to be A.H.S. although I believe that in Mervyn Eisel's
time was the University of Minnesota) is only required to keep record of the
names accepted for registration and to confirm applications for registration
when he has ascertained that the name has not already been used for a hosta,
and that the proposed name does not violate the style required by the
International Code.     Roger Bowden, Devon,  England.
