>Another Iris name that drives me nuts is Iris innominata.
         How could you resent an iris named "the unnamed iris"?
and then there is Hyacinthoides non-scripta, which no one has written about.
and the Orchid, Dracula vampira 'Bela Lugosi'.
Botanists make sense--sure they do.  And I pronounce every name properly,
because I understand what I am saying.
