Ah, greenery

If you had ten (soon to be eleven) plants to name after scientists, who would you name them after?

[I've counted the twin bamboo shoots as one plant because I've got them tied together like those ones you see in Chinese kitsch stores -- and thinking of naming them Ramón y Cajal.]


  1. Not really a scientist per se, but "Agricola".

  2. Georgius Agricola actually, author of de re Metallica. Because it's about mining and smelting. Written by Mr. "Farmer" know, plants 'n stuff.
    Sigh, well it was briefly amusing to me at least.

  3. I lol'd, if it's any comfort...
