Nomenclature Note
Name not validly published by Reinhold L. Lübbert in 2001 in honour of Guy Sternberg of the Starhill Forest Arboretum, Illinois, USA. The name has already entered use in horticulture and is currently due to be validly published with the required description in Latin and nomination of holotype. Provisionally accepted in this checklist. Plants being sold under this name (see leaf illustration here) are probably of a single clone and should be given a cultivar name to distinguish them from future wild collected stock or seedlings.
