Unusual Plant Names that Make you Say, WHAT THE HECK?
Unusual plant names are common. Sometimes I think the marketing comes from a group of avid gardeners sitting in a room thinking they are like Hallmark Card creators trying to come up with a clever and sellable name. In certain cases, it appears that struggles finding that slam dunk led to something very unappealing. Check these out!
2022’s most unusual plants list:
Spirea Double Play Blue Kazoo is a nice plant and worth planting but this name has no bearing on what it does and what it looks like.
Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick must be special to a single individual but when I put it in a plan (which I don’t do anymore) nobody want it. Is it the plant or the name??
Rock N Round Pride and Joy Sedum is a cool new plant but I had to laugh at how all that wording amounted to something that represented the plant.
Cole’s Prostrate always brings a laugh. Seems they let the medical board name this one.
There are a lot of fun and unusual plant names. I hope these were entertaining. Andy
