The horror, pt. 2

I have been pulling together my list of plants in the ground, and so using the American Horticultural Society A-Z to look up names proper or common. Under Lilium, there is this listing: L. Strawberry Vanilla Latte. Why, why, why would someone go to all the effort to develop a lily, only to inflict that misery of a name on it?

Oh, let's start an offensive cultivar name list. this guy is alternately funny and offensive, but he does come up with some terrible names. Maybe we should get your mom some Hosta "Diana remembered". There are worse names in that list -- hostas appear to be a magnet for this kind of bullshit.

I'm in - daylillys and hostas are both prime offenders.
