When using Google to search for Colchicum bulbs, don't type in their common name instead. Oh my giddy Aunt.......

What 'meadow saffron' and 'autumn crocus'? 


You could have the same problem with Dicentra, depending on what common name you use.

Be careful with Nigella too, amazing what Love in a mist brings up.

Now you know why proper Botanical names are so  important!

Lycoris americana  shares the same name as Colchitum too!

And ladies in the bath 

Need a rub down with a stinging nettle now..........

I'd also do what GQT couldn't a few years ago and avoid Rhodochiton Volubilis or Purple Bells.

Looking up Rubus Cockburnianus is ok, but sending your OH to ask for one at the GC can be amusing

Haha, that reminds me of the time I asked the local newsagent to get me a DIVER magazine, for us rufty tufty lads and lasses that go swimming underwater with tanks of air on our backs.  The following week , I asked about it.   Its on the shelf..... the one with the two girls in bikinis holding hands on the front......NOOOO... Thats DIVA.   Not the same at all.
