>>>>>>>I'll bet it's something like skayf, and if so, the botanical epithet 
be pronounced (by me anyway) SKAYF-e-ee (where ay represents the long Latin
e and the e represents the short i of Latin and the ii represents the long i
of Latin). Please, none of that skayf-ee-eye stuff!

Everybody I know, pronounce it SHE-FEE, or there abouts.

Best Wishes,
