Re: Devil's was OT Cat Advice


I know it's bugleweed; that's the only way I was able to figure out he was talking about Ajuga.

Ajuga is Bugleweed. Perhaps the n was just a personal error. I have a very horticulturally knowledgeable friend who insists that Elderberry is Sambuncus.
Beats me why he added Indiana to it; it's native to Eurasia.

The best name I've heard yet in the nursery is "Indiana Bungle Weed." Don't ask me why, but I figured out the man wanted Ajuga!

FWIW, common names are issues, so no lecture needed.

But what I have found,
seems common names by area location are not as problematic as using them in something like this list. If all you are selling to is neighborhood folks, most grew up knowing that same common name...which doesn't imply that the
'real' name shouldn't also be listed on the tag.

JMHO

Yes, common names again.  When we sold the Kalanchoe I used the
name Devil's
Backbone becuase there were several plants using the Mother of
Thousands
name, including 4 different genera on RHS (though RHS does not
include any
Kalanchoe as one of them)

RHS shows 3 common names for Kalanchoe
diagremontiana :
MEXICAN HAT PLANT;  DEVIL'S BACKBONE;  FLOPPER
And for
Devil's Backbone they show Kalanchoe diagremontiana and the
previously
mentioned Pedilanthus tithymaloides.

I always try to select a common name
that reduces confusion.

So I had to look that up just to be sure. Kalanchoe diagremontiana
is
what we call "Mother of Thousands".

Didn't know Aralia spinosa, so I looked it up. I'm guessing it's  called

"devil's walking stick" because the stems have thorns? Unlike  Harry

Lauder's WS, the stems seem straight.
Asidem: We have a succulent here
[Pedilanthus tithymaloides] called
"devil's backbone." Devil seems to be
a popular plant modifier. In  the
case of our succulent, however, it's
likely related to the  crookedness
of the stems rather than to a presence
of thorns.
No matter. What's the charm of the A. spinosa, Zem--other than
it's
just kind of a neat/odd looking plant?

I agree with you, Theresa.  Cats tend to

number of them.  I do  have
mine separated into two "colonies" -- 4 in
my bedroom and  bathroom, 2
on the enclosed back porch, 1 in the kitchen
with Otis,  and 5 in the
dining room.  They are a lot to contend with.
Meanwhile, back to the
plant world, a friend at Master Gardeners  last
night promised to bring
me an Auralia spinosa at our plant  swap next
week.  I have always
wanted a Devil's Walking Stick, and  I'm looking
forward to getting it.
She also said the deer have  eaten all the leaves
off the poisin ivy
in her yard.  We are having  a terrible time with
starving deer this
year.

Wow!  I can't imagine
that.  I think my max is 4, I have 3  currently
and I think 2 is ideal.

Thanks, Daryl.  I

I now have 13 cats

no?  At least they get
along with each other.   Even the new arrival

his life, and that  is a good thing for my
sanity.

Thanks for the
reminder about trees. What a horrible thing.

I was hoping that
your cat would reappear today. I'm sorry.

Years ago I had a friend who kept her cat on a long tether.
One
day Arnold (the cat) climbed a tree, tangled the tether and
hanged
himself. Make sure you don't have any trees in Diesel's  area
when
you get him fixed up.  BTW, I brought Sweet Pea in  tonight
since
Francesca has never appeared all day long.  I  have way too
many
animals in my house, but I just can't justify  "feeding" them
to
the coyotes.
