I know. But it would be great if you Angri-Saxons also use the latin names of the herbs you post about. In that case non-Angri-Saxons won't have to google for that latin/systemetical name first to know what plant you are talking about.


Agreed. The use of the proper and internationally recognized name can reduce or eliminate the confusion associated with the use of "common" names. Common names can often be applied to more than one species, with potentially dangerous results. An example shows up in these recent exchanges. As noted above, A. calamus is traditionally referred to as "bitter root" in parts of the Eastern US. This species is distinctly different from the "bitter root" of the western US Bitterroot Mountain range (Lewisia rediviva). The two species are not even in the same family (Acoraceae and Montiaceae respectively) and have notably different properties.

Note: L.rediviva is actually the state flower of Montana, US.

Edit: Format.

Piney:  The American Chestnut Foundation is offering chestnut seedlings for out-planting.  See if you can google them.
