Re: The taxonomists are at it again!


Zem,
I thought it was interesting that Armitage wrote that little aside on
taxonomy for these plants.  He said he usually waits 2 yrs b4 adopting the
new name.  Well, those names were changed longer than 2 years ago.
Nurseries just won't budge on the names and keep selling them with the old
names.  Oh well, we've been selling 'Chocolate' at the MG sales under the
Ageratina name for 3 yrs now.
