I also think that to pretend that the many plants that are named , but
not regestered, don't exist, (by name)untill actual registration takes
place is simply silly.  This (publishing names) should not be banned in

with you , however on using pictures of unrigestered hostas and a
corrosponding name in the Journal.  I Believe this is one area where the
AHS has a logical position.  This is especially true with new plants.
