When my wife's mother died we planted a shrub in her memory. As her name was Myrtle it didn't take a genius to come up with a suitable plant. For my own mother we planted her favourite rose.
Now a very dear friend has died and I'd like to plant something in his memory. The only problem is finding something appropriate as his name was Bob, never "Robert" unless we wanted to wind him up
In my search I've only come across on plant Acer Palmatum Bobs Big Green, which doesn't seem to be available in this country - I contacted an Acer specialist with the question.
Does anybody have any bright ideas?
