    Does UBC have the means to test and deduce botanical aspects by cross referencing similar varieties of the same species? Could UBC be a reliable source for such findings? I don’t see why not, other than being totally wrapped up in hundreds of other cases such as this!

    Hi Elizabeth – unfortunately, no, we don’t have the resources. For cultivated plants, we generally rely on larger institutions, the Royal Horticultural Society’s “plants of interest” surveys (where they take a group of plants and evaluate and define a number of cultivars against each other) or exceptional horticulturists to produce definitive books.
