>>I don't see what the big problem is? Aren't they all elephant ears and
arrowhead plants?
LOL how many times have I heard them called that.<<

PERFECT soloution, Brian, why did`nt we think of that before now???   Those
of us that have trouble w/ the scientific names of plants can use the ones
you mention with some 'sub-species' such as 'White leaf arrowhead plant' or
'Large dark green elephant ear' and be very happy, and the rest of the group
can go on trying to better understand the taxonomy and understanding of
genus and species and use the scientific names, as confusing as they may
sometimes be!
