Unregistered Hostas

I find the policy of the AHS regarding unregistered hostas meaningless.

The biggest problem is that registering a hosta has absolutely no
consequences. It means NOTHING.

As far as the Journal is concerned, it will be incumbent upon the Editors to
allow the use of names and pix of unregistered hostas in articles;otherwise,
the Journal editors would not be fulfilling the missions of the AHS. They can
always use an * to indicate that the plant is not registered.

If you want to buy an unregistered hosta, simply ask some knowledgeable people
about its worth.

I really do not think it appropriate or wise for the AHS to be entering the
market place;but, if the AHS wishes to do so why does't the AHS itself warn
people about various lookalikes and duplicates. Why put the burden on the
growers, hybridizers, and nurseries? 

That list that was inserted in the last THJ was a waste of money. Pay no
attention to the policies of the AHS in respect of unregistered hostas.
