Default Re: Are these the future bananas?

Used to be a real stickler for correct botanical and cultivar names until a couple of college botany courses. Loved the courses, but found out the plant world is a lot bigger, more complex, and more ambiguous than the animal world.

Also, I discovered that botanical plant i.d. standards are far more accurate than horticultural standards. Like, science vs applied science.

And, the farther away one is from a given plant's home range, the more likely it is to be mis-i.d.'d.

Which is why sites like this are so valuable! So glad to have found it!
