Re: Ani Machi or Geisha? more questions!?!
Thanks for the reply C.H.
After I wrote my question about these 2 plants, I noticed that Robyn's Nest
no longer has 'Geisha' in her 2001 catalog, but only Ani Machi with a note
saying it's the plant that used to be called Geisha. C.H. and others, if
this were YOUR plant, and since it came from Robyn's Nest, would you change
the label to Ani Machi? You mentioned Paul Aden...is it really one of
Paul's plants and it's not registered?
I read an article from the Central Ohio Hosta Society's newsletter about the
AHS's Award of Merit for Garden Performance. It listed Geisha as a winner
of this award for hostas registered before 1986.
Which hosta REALLY won that award...Kevin Vaughn's Geisha or Ani Machi?

Does this mean that the plant I got as Geisha through Robyn's Nest is not
the same plant that Kevin registered or that it is the same plant, but it
should be called Ani Machi? Does it mean that Apple Court is a sport of
Kevin's Geisha or of Ani Machi ....or none of the above???
I check with Kevin some time ago as we were working to get all plants
registered. As I remember, he said the plant he registered as Geisha no
longer existed and he would not mind that Paul Aden reused the name. This
was definately a fortunate circumstance as you could easily see the dangers
that could occur when someone does not register their plants with the IRA
(International Registration Authority). We would than have two different
plants with the same name. What confusion!
Anyway, the plant you have may one day be corrected in the registration.
That means two other things. One, that the registration description using
Kevin Vaughn's plant is not the same as the plant currently being sold under
that name, and Kevin's plant does not exist; so you don't have to worry
about trying to find it.
