After browsing through a certain nursery site, I ran across multiple plants one of which was S. x 'Judith Adrian' (AS x Judith hindle). The nursery then claimed to apply the name to ALL of the siblings of this cross. This came to be not just for this plant but for other hybrids advertised for sale.
How can such a name be published let alone registered when the siblings will all undoubtedly be very different from one another? This has both confused and angered me do to the fact that if this method were adopted, a set limit of the number of possible cultivars would be set.
IE: All Moorei crosses such Leah Wilkerson, Adrian Slack would simply be called Moorei rather then have individually different names. Though the parentage is the same, both plants look drastically different so I believe that adopting such a method would be improper and misleading.
This would make it difficult for people to both refer to the same plant when no two are alike.
Does anyone else feel this way or am I the only one?
