Can someone report upon why all the jade plants are classified under the ovata species? When I buy one, or when I see it in a catalogue, the same cultivar names are listed with argentea as the species.

I've been growing the Hobbit and Gollum in addition to the usual flat-leaved jade plant (which I probably got as a real youngster). Recently, I was pleased to find one 'ET Fingers' for $2.98 at the local big box store.
