species and hybrids and cultivars

I will try again. There are species and hybrids both in the wild and 
in the garden Of course the species in the garden come from the 
wild originally, directly or via seed. Both species and hybrids can 
sport . People of Watanabe nursery go often to the foot of Mount 
Fuji were there is a very large stand of H montana to collect 
variageted sports They seem to find about one after a day work!. 
So species in the wild can sport. They found a centre variegated 
one and named it H montana Choko Nishiki. Acording to the rules 
it is allowed to omit the montana part but as the nursery man said 
you would loose a lot of information. A species in your garden can 
sport too. If your H longipes gets a yellow edge tomorrow you could 
name it H longipes "Bob's Yellow Edge"" or, less desirable, " Bob's 
Yellow Edge".    If we now look at the term cultivar, it turns out that 
a cv can be a species but also a hybrid If a cv is a species it 
could/should be named as eg H montana Choko Nishiki. If the cv is 
some hybrid just give it a cv name like H. Royal Standard  If not 
clear , just ask
