What Is In A Name?
I was picking some of this Sphaeralcea coccinea in Pendroy the other day, and the neighbours' young boy came running over to see what I was doing.

Trying to interest the young lad in plant physiology, I pointed out the pistil in the middle with the white stem and round yellow top. "Oh, I know what it is called" he said. "It's Poop-Tongue!" And with that, he ran off to join his brothers for something more exciting to do....
