This is sure to be one of the plants that people will be kicking themselves for not getting when they had the chance. I have yet to see a single dud among them. Beautiful plants all around.

Yet the use of single quotes is reserved, strictly for use with registered cultivar names. So any other use of them, when writing plant names, could be misleading.

The way that mato wrote the name in an early post to this thread, is not confusing, as that post did not misuse single quotes, but instead used double quotes. It would also not be confusing if it weren't in any quotes at all, or in brackets, parentheses, or various other commonly used punctuation characters. However, using single quotes automatically implies that it is a registered cultivar name, and, as you say, it is merely a location identification. Someday, someone may choose to register it, or another plant with that name as a cultivar. Then the use of the single quotes would be appropriate, for whichever plant is actually registered with that name.

Drosera 'Hawaii', D. 'Hong Kong', D. 'Kanto', D. 'Kansai', and D. 'Kununurra' are all registered cultivars named after localities. Hence the use of the single quotes.
