Bill's statement below seems the most pertinent point
about names to me. But please don't take me to task
because I've never studied this matter. Recently we
discussed a famous cultivar that has very very varied
growth habit. It seems that regardless of the parent
that any distantly different child would be a cultivar
even if it is a child of a new hosta collected in the
wilds of Japan that no one has ever seen. If I really
don't understand what I'm talking about just ignore me
because I'm not going to begin a study of names or

>I see this as a good reason to drop the species names
altogether and leave that information in the parentage
descriptions that go with the names.
Any plant that has a species epithet before it other
than 'Elegans' is a single cultivar anyway as a
selected individual of that species. 
Because it is not a seed strain or other group of
plants, it is simply an individual cultivar that
should be named separately.
