      • Sorry I lapsed into patios. Hehe. I always been tickled by the original common names of plants that can be talked of as ‘choice’ garden plants in this country, using only their Latin names. A good example is the ‘exquisite’ nectarscodium which I saw at Longwood Gardens referred to as Sicilian honey garlic.

        • Coming from a systematics background, I rarely know the common names so I always have to look them up. Oftentimes they’re descriptive enough, but also confusing. Oh well.

          • Respect! – as they say. I haven’t a botanical qualification to my name but have been a sort of botanical groupie in my recent employment, working in and with botanical gardens in UK on interpretation for the public. I agree with you about English common names, the best book on the subject has have no scientific ambitious at all and it written by a linguist and poet. (An Englishman’s Flora, Geoffrey Grigson – first published in 1955) A sort of cultural botany I suppose.
