Kind of like how mountain lions are also pumas and cougars. It's unsurprising that some flowers have multiple names. I grew up with bachelor buttons as my favorite little flower because they were blue, a real blue not a dark purple most flowers are. But I moved and now most packets I see call them cornflowers, which annoys me because they don't look like corn and corn doesn't have a flower. I only learned that they originally grew in-between the rows of corn in Europe, so it's more a reference to where you found them than what they look like. I was wondering if you know of any other plants that have very different common names?
