I remember months ago that someone asked where they could find plants with a certain name. Well being unable to sleep I've been looking through all sorts of things and came across a fuchsia Beverley- this got me wondering what other plants I could have with my name. Can anyone remember where I can find this out please?
Just thought I'd show how lovely the fuchsia is.
If you enter beverley into the search box here you get 9 results of different plants
Thank you Geoff for the link. I have the same name as the Queen and the Queen Mum so I found 64 plants! My children gave me clematis montana "Elizabeth" years ago for Mothers Day and I still have it.
I am currently trying to make a family border.
I went onto the RHS search engine typed in several * and the name and had some good results. Even found one with my real name, What a surprise.
It does not mean the plants are readily available though.
Thank you everyone. I will have to see what I can get hold of- and will fit in my tiny little garden
You can also buy a rose and have it named for someone - lovely for certain circumstances. A friend of ours at work died and we had a rose named for her, and gave it to her Mum - she was thrilled to bits with it. Quite the opposite of what you want, but god non-the-less
Do you know the firm for a rose Bookertoo ?
'country garden roses' is the one we used, but I think there may be others - maybe not all roses? Guess work ony that last!
Thanks, it gave me an idea to solve a name problem
