I was looking at their version of Bogeyman..I dont get it..so did the AVSA change the plants to have different names than before?? the one I grew in the 80's[and won ribbons with) was a semi mini varigated with dark purple single flowers..It was stunning and I am going to try and find another one online if I cant from the club members....:0)

AVSA First Class program has Bogeyman with your picture and description. The one in the AVSA photographs looks like a chimera, totally different. It could have been an error OR>>> I was told recently, don't know if this is true or not, that when plants are registered, the registration only has a certain number of years and I don't know if it can be renewed or not but when the registration lapses, someone else can come and take the name. tish

Hope that is NOT true, Tish. Rather stupid if it is. If one is a collector, you could wind up buying what is actually a duplicate all because someone renamed it.
