Japanese Name



Hooper Connell  This name was originally published in the ACS., Quarterly, Oct.1950, as Reg. No.54 with the ACS. However it was the desire of the originator that it should be named for his wife and he distributed it from the date of its Plant Patent 1078, in 1952 as Mrs Hooper Con­nell. This is now regarded as its valid name under the requirement that the name should be approved by the originator.
