Thanks Geneviève! This helps me to
understand more of what I've been trying to learn. My question now
would be how did Édouard
André write about a hybrid plant that in theory didn't exist at the
time he died? Had someone already done the cross much earlier? Are we
talking about the same cross?|

We speak whith French ? Edouard André or André Michaux?
I took the opportunity to recall that
Anthurium andraeanum is dedicated to Edouard André. It is her friend
Linden who has dedicated this species.
André is the official name of the french
botanist Édouard André (1840- 1911).
André Michaux, born March
7, 1746 in Versailles, died October 11, 1802 in Tamatave (Madagascar),
was a botanist and explorer French.
It is very interesting to understand the
origin of names.
Steve thank you very much for your detective work. It is exciting.
