We thank you for your opinion. We stand by our system of using any 
misspellings that we find in the various sources used.   The computer can 
only find names as they are spelled.  From that we code errors by using the 
sign 'ES' such as ID 266-ES Blue Wedgewood to indicate an error in spelling 
of ID 266-RC Blue Wedgwood.  I find it very hard to keep it simple enough 
that the computer can sort thru it and yet keep it so that people who are not 
college professors can use it.   

The correct spelling of "Moorheimii' is giving everyone fits.  I used the 
spelling as found in the Zilis book to perhaps be the correct one. My guess 
is his book will be used for reference purposes more than any other hosta 
book now in print.  If the people from Europe can't agree on how to spell it, 
how can I come to any conclusion. I guess what is important is that they find 
information concerning 'Moorheimii' someway or an other. We can debate this 
issue till the 'cows come home a wagging their tails.

You will note that I use 'Zonneveld Hosta Sports' in my reference section.  I 
hope you spelled everything correctly.

Have a great day,
