Kitty, when I really got into gardening (I did tomatoes & some perennials 
before) I remember a very knowledgeable gardener saying, 'A $50 plant is of 
little value with out the botanical name'.  That has stuck with me.  I still 
have plants in my garden  which I purchased early that have no detail labels 
and I truly regret that.  I always encourage new gardeners to label their 
plants but few do saying they just wish to enjoy the plant they didn't care 
whats its name is.
