RE: purple hems

There really should be some major criteria for naming plants... like a
major difference rather than some small minute difference. 

OK- you can all yell now, but I am firm believer in where you grow it
makes some if not most of the difference. A tad brighter, softer, a
color difference that only a microscope can see is not worthy of another
name...might just be where it is grown at.

They are driving me nuts!... especially now that DNA is also coming into
the mix and changing known names and even species....

Beginning to think- it's a plant of XX type.... is good enough!
