Re: Registering

 has no effect on the cost of the plant because the people who determine the
 price, the buyers and the sellers, do not consider registration as a factor.
 Supply and demand determine price and registration does not affect either.
 I hate to be nasty BUT----Chick is absolutely right. The only thing that 
registration accomplishes is to give the registrar something to do and to 
give the AHS a reason for paying him. I keep telling you all ==THE REGISTRAR 
WILL REGISTER ANYTHING as long as you send in that info and the money.
Registration does not mean a hosta is a worthy garden plant. It does not 
protect the registrant===someone could register the identical plant under 
another name.

Also, many of the registrations have absolutely no information that is useful 
to anyone. Look at them: See how many are described as Tokudama x Sieboldiana 
(or vice versa);OR Pedigree (Parentage) Unknown.

The whole scheme of getting the AHS to be the International Registration 
Authority (forgive me Roger Bowden), was the brainchild of R. Olson. He 
simply wanted to put another scalp on his belt.
