Thanks John.

Only things I figure the year is useful for is noting how long a seedling may have been evaluated before introduction - maybe held back because it doesn't increase fast or grow well. Or maybe reconsidered later because even tho there are other similar or 'better' flowers, it has some other valuable traits - vigor, reliability, rebloom etc.

<use the year of the cross. >

Do you, as registrar, have a preference of which format to use?

<consistency form of the number in the spaces, dashes and other separators that are used. Using 94 DR29X one time and 94-OM/14 another time makes it difficult for searchers.
