Trillium rivale "Verne Ahier"

I made a spelling mistake in my message Re: Lily Pollination. The 
correct spelling of the Trillium rivale cultivar is Verne Ahier, 
Verne with a final "e", not Vern with no final "e".

A very minor point, but like Sedum spathulifolium 'Cape Blanco', 
named after the Oregon cape and not the Moroccan city, this 
cultivar's name is often misspelled, so I felt it was worth setting 
the record straight.

I do not know if this cultivar name has ever been validly published 
according to the code governing names of cultivated plants, though it 
has been used for a considerable time.
