I am not at all protective about the Group names, when I created them about 20 years ago it was because I needed a way of classifying my collection of over 300 cannas.
I do see a need to separate the Crozy floriferous canna of the late 1800’s from the hybrids produced over the last 100 years, mixing Crozy and Italian Groups so much that you cannot classify them by their breeding.
Furthermore, I like the Hybrid suggestion, and I must admit that I have always found the Premier Group name as a bit awkward, but this suggestion is the first alternative anybody has come up with, and I rather like it.
