Following baboon comments recently, you may like to know that this idea is
not new. A few years ago, my good friend John Coke (popular nurseryman over
here growing all sorts of lovely plants) described Fascicularia
"looking for all the world like a baboons backside"
If you know this plant, you will know that this description is perfect.
Incidentally, John put this description in his catalogue, and he has some
very genteel customers!
