I can see the point of some name changes - especially now I'm gardening in French with their common names to deal with tho, being more collectors than gardeners my new gardening friends trip botanical names with surprising ease and frequency tho still the old ones sometimes. Persicaria is still polygonum to many of them. Nor do they call tender geraniums pelargoniums yet. Their common names are unfathomable to me. eg Ancolie for aquilegia.
I'm just surprised that this particular change hasn't come up earlier. Didn't Carol extol the virtues of sedum Autumn Joy on GW recently? No mention of a botanical name change.
Like you Nut, I can't keep up.
