Re: Plant shopping

And now they are talking about a whole new system, PhyloCode to
replace the "old-fashioned" Linnean system.  Won't that be fun!  I'm
glad I'm old enough I won't have to worry about that one.

During the time they are trying to hash it out, a grower might purchase the
plant, grow it and distribute it, and thus whatever name it had at the time
will travel with it.  If you want to know for sure what the accurate name is
for the plant, I'd suggest the RHS Plantfinder database.  If it is not
there, google around.  You may find it listed several ways, but I would
choose to follow the name choice of the more or most respected institution.
Instead of using the name an online  nursery had on it, select the name used
by Clemson University or MOBOT or some such higher institution.  They may
not be up to date either, but generally more accurate than some other
sources.  IMO
