summary of catagories

Just to sum up all categories:
1. SPECIES ( 23!) as originally found in the wild eg: H montana 
2. HYBRIDS: crosses between species, from the wild or manmade
3. CULTIVARS that are species,  from the wild eg H montana 
"Choko Nishiki" or manmade eg H kikutii "Red Neck Heaven"
4.  CULTIVARS that are hybrids, from the wild eg H "Alismifolia" or 
manmade eg H "Royal Standard"
PS the term specioid is superfluous and is best abandoned. It is  
not an official term and is occasionally used for cultivars that have 
been so long in culture that they were looked upon as being a kind 
of species eg H fortunei. However, these are just old hybrids not a 
different category. By the way how old is old? G Schmid recently 
used the term specioid for his hybrid H "Laevigata"
