Garden Funnies

Gene mentioned that most of us on this list know a little more than the
average yardener. Every once in awhile I'll see something on TV or read
something in a book that has to do with a plant and it'll be so obvious
the writer, set designer, or propguy didn't know what the heck they were

Today on a TV show, the setting was late November and the man cut a
flower from a shrub and handed it to his wife. It was a white lilac. She
said "Oh! What's this?" He replied, "Mahonia japonia (not japoniCa - he
rhymed the words!) "It flowers only at this time of year for a month."

Who set this stage?, wrote these lines?  Idiots!  Does no one do research?

Anyone else got one to share?
