Yes and no. The name was published (CPN 22:98, 1993, i.e. before I
was a co-editor!) without a description or type. It is therefore a
nomen nudum (invalid). It cannot be established as a culivar name
because it is Latin. There are some cultivars of _N. *dianiana_,
which is likewise a nomen nudum and a nomenclatural synonym of _N.
*redlanderi_. None of these cultivars was ever described, however. So
none of the names has been established, and none should be used (use
the hybrid formula instead; this is unambiguous).

Kind regards
