What's In a Name?

Vernacular names for plants can sometimes make you think or wrap you in delight, for example, the common dandelion has a name that I find perfect: blowballs.

What is one to make of these? Ramgoat dashalong, yellow alder, West Indian holly and sage rose.

Botany Photo of the Day explains. One of the reasons I like this site is the often informed comments so read these. The things you can learn from others, an example of what the Internet can be, what a website can be.

Enjoy this yellow of yellows.
