It does not matter if Mr Schijff was dutch or not All plant names are in
latin so should be pronounced as such ( of course everyone has its own
"latin" pronunciation). The rule is that in most latin names the accent
is on the third "syllable" So I say jonEsii not jOnesii. ( with each i
as in keen) I say PurpUrea not purpurEa
