"In the International Code of Nomenclature for Cultivated Plants 1995, Article 17.6 dictates that all words should have an initial capital letter, with the following exceptions. Words that follow a hyphen, conjunctions and prepositions, other than those which are the first word in the epithet. Exceptions are also given where linguistic custom dictates otherwise.

The following hosta cultivar epithets should be corrected as follows: ‘Rosedale For Pete’s Sake’ to ‘Rosedale for Pete’s Sake’..."
