How to wow them at the spring plant sales

Spring is here, burgeoning with plant sales by Master Gardeners, botanic gardens, you name it. Naming it is the issue. Is that a variety or a cultivar you’re buying? Time to pull up your garden socks (or hitch up your gardening skirt) and nail the nomenclature this season. The seed of a variety grows true to type, that of a cultivar does not, for starters.
