Chick, I am trying to follow your discussion about naming plants and was wondering why you think that just because someone uses the word "delight" as part of a registered cultivar name that means no one else may register another plant with "delight" as part of the name? There is no such ICNCP rule that supports this scenario? Have your read somewhere that this is the case?

Name prefixes are a common practice in the registration of plants. They do help identify the garden, hybridizer, or series. Adding a prefix will also usually help a name from being rejected at the time of initial registration (as long as it is compliant with all the other naming rules).

I don't see much reason to name a plant 'Bridgewood Shore Master' or something else similar to a Lakeside plant, but I'm not sure why it shouldn't be accepted if I did. It may not be a classy thing to do, especially with your names that are fairly unique, but I don't see any more possibility of confusion with that than with many other similar names. And some of your names are not all that unique. (No offense to the names, but I don't think they should take common words like Charm or Delight off the market just because there are Lakeside plants that use those words. Oops, we already have 'Afternoon Delight' and 'Lakeside Delight'. But I notice that Gil Jones' 'Warwick Delight' isn't registered while most of the common Warwicks are. I wonder if that was a problem. And then, if that's a problem, how did 'Blue Sophistication' and 'Lakeside Sophistication' both get registered.

But then, I can't claim to understand the process.
