Re: Plicatas & Luminatas

Here is what got the luminata thread started.  I was going through catalogs
and found plants listed as luminatas that to me were straight up plicatas,
and visa versa.  Now, if anyone wants to indulge me, I just went through a
catalog (no name given, but an industrious person can probably figure it
out) and came up with two lists, one as plicatas, and one as luminatas.
However, my two lists often didn't match the classification in the catalog.
Below I've listed them as grouped in the catalog.  After each name is what
I would call it (based on what I can see in the photos, or sometimes with
my experience with the cultivar).  I don't know if these are listed in
their respective catagories as registered, or just as the particular
nursery classes them (I would asume the former).  Some might be
combinations of plicata and luminata, and I don't count on my ability to
recognize those.

Now can somebody tell me if I'm smokin' dope here?

AS  PLICATAS  (not going to list all the plicatas here, just the luminatas,
several looked like plicata near the hafts, and maybe luminata at the edge,
but I couldn't tell from the photos, so I didn't list them)

Going through the lists, I find a lot of plants under several catagories
that I would put elsewhere, especially in bitones, bicolors, and blends.
