Neat, Carlo!

Is this the first time it has bloomed? Does it usually bloom at this time? 

Thanks for the "nit" on Ambrosina/Ambrosinia. 

IPNI shows that Ambrosinia is a Linnaean genus; and it shows that Ambrosina
was published two years before Linne published Ambrosinia. So even back then
they were at it. 

And even now, two and a half centuries later, some of us are still getting
it wrong!
