Hi Homebird - I think it's a senecio.

One of those plants that has had a name change...Grrrr...was Senecio, now known as Brachyglottis. Why do they keep doing these changes?

28 Jun, 2010

 

It's definitely a Brachyglottis, very probably 'Sunshine'.

Spritzhenry - Brachyglottis (meaning: short tongue) actually pre-dates Senecio, so really it's just a return to their correct home rather than a new name :-)

Thankyou everyone. Brachyglottis it is.

OK, Ilex, I'll let 'them' off this time!

Brachyglottis - such an unlovely name... and I'm not too keen on Dendranthema either...

I suspect that most Chrysanth growers don't realise that their beloved "Chrysanthemums" are in the genus Dendrathema! The only true Chrysanthemums being the annual species.

I think I shall turn into a 'Grumpy Old Woman' at this rate! lol.

Be glad if you did Spritz, nice to know I'm not alone, lol!

If any more names change, I sure will, Bamboo! ;-/

Schizostylis>Hesperanthera.....sorry, I'll get my coat!

Leave your coat, Fractal - they change names all the time it seems to me, I can't keep up, lol

And here's me thinking it's an age thing. Thank goodness I am not going senile.

28 Jun, 2010

 

LOL, Homebird - but it might be no comfort for you to realise that I'm beginning to wonder whether I'm showing early signs of senility;-))

28 Jun, 2010

 

I give up! :-/
