The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "...cannot be accused of being unique. In fact, it might be
impossible to distinguish between 'Green Rim Nugget', 'Carriage
Wheels', 'Larry Englerth', and 'Spinning Wheel'..."
An article by Alex
Hosta Journal (1997 Vol. 28 No. 2) states that,
"...'Green Eclipse' and 'Green Rim Nugget' are the same plant. The name was
changed to 'Green Eclipse' when the "Code" frowned on names with more than
words a number of years ago."
