Re: Registration

Clyde, as absurd as it is to you the "International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants" (ICNCP) has been published by this United Nation's subcommittee since the U.N.'s inception and prior to that it was a self-appointed group of international botanists (the most recent revisions were in 1955 and 1997).  This same group is currently meeting to consider another revision to the code which could be made effective in 2002-3.  Piers Trehane, a member of the Royal Horticultural Society, is again the chairman of the committee.  The International Registration Authorities (IRAs) are then expected to follow the ICNCP.  Currently the IRA for Hosta is the AHS in conjunction with the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum.  Interestingly enough the Appendix to the last revision shows the BHHS as a regional sub-IRA?
