I believe it has only recently gotten a Certificate of Botanical Recognition, which has not yet been published in Awards Quarterly. So once the name becomes official [to the AOS], it can start being used for awards.

Tom Kalina got the CBR on Phrag dalessandroi 'Fox Valley' in November, 2005 at the monthly judging in Chicago. It was validated by Dodson.

Yep, I was on the team that did that award. Not too special a flower (an nice d'al), but we felt the waters needed to be tested as to how the taxonomists would treat it. It certainly breeds differently than straight besseae and has a different growth habit. Very important horticulturally.
