    Hi everyone I really want to thank all for your beautiful comments and I just wanted to ask one question I know BD and Connie both have given me the name (Bob Betts) the more I research on line the one that does come closest is (C. Bob Betts 'York', AM/AOS) would this be correct of me for using that ID or should I just leave it as a NOID. Ill sit back and read your comments and again THANK YOU!

    NOID or with a name? Important is that you love it.

    No - York is one particular plant from the seed pod when the cross waa first made, and registered ; in seed raising, every plant can be slightly different from the next, so when the raiser picks out a particularly good one, to show and maybe win awards, he gives it a clonal name - in that case "York" to distinguish it from plants with the same parentage , and hence grex name ( Bob Betts) e.g. "Polar Bear", "Betty" etc. There is quite a lot of these in fact, since this has been a very successful and frequently awarded cross. But unless you have a division of a particular one, or a plant raised by tissue propagation from a particular one, it would be quite wrong to use that. You couold of course ( taking a punt that it is Bob Betts you have) call it Bob Betts " Beny" and that will distinguish your clone from all the others.
