Good spot Ken. I was using the spelling in the subject heading in the 
previous post  which I think originally came from you and was 
repeated by a number of others and it was wrong and I didn't catch it 
and then I repeated it.  And it will remain forever misspelled in our 
archives. And yes it is very easy to do and probably why there are a 
lot of plant names on the Internet spelled more than one way.
