Re: New Rules

If one goes thru the list of registered cultivars (hostas) there are quite a 
few with the parentage=="Parentage Unknown". I think it somewhat strange to 
publish a pic of such a one with the caption reading: " Seedling. Parentage 
unknown." 

Why not put in bold face a WARNING on each color page, the following: 
UNREGISTERED HOSTAS PICTURED HERE ARE SOMETIMES IDENTIFIED BY THE USE OF A 
FANCY CULTIVAR NAME IN PARENTHESES. SUCH IS A NODEM NUDUM.

So, the cutline could read: " Unregistered Seedling, r x w ('Dubacks Dupage 
Parkys Wonder'), seen here in the garden of the hybridizer, Chick Clyde 
Bridgekett IV."

Better journalism; more informative; more in furtherance of the Purposes of 
the AHS.

The AHS does not need the draconian rules that Kevin so nicely described; 
rather, it needs a new Board and Executive Committee--- (and a new Registrar).
