People tend to get into trouble speaking the truth too openly. The 
little man usually loses out where money or power speak louder. (IMHO)
>Certainly there are consumer affairs offices in most district attorney 
offices, but they are generally embroiled in more serious (from their 
perspective) problems.
Yes, I doubt that too many would be very interested in this type of 
thing. I also doubt that it is an illegal practice to name a plant what 
ever you want for sale. It is just unethical and deliberately 
misleading, and causes considerable frustration and confusion for 
serious growers and collectors.
There is also probably a vast majority of gardeners who wouldn't care 
even if they new the plants were 'wrongly' named.
