What’s in a Name?

Voel-kan-nie-sit-nie

Muraltia heisteria sounds just like any other plant to the non-botanist, but give it the name by which it is known in Wellington, South Africa, and it takes on a whole new personality!  Believe it or not this plant is called “Voel-kan-nie-sit-nie”.  Isn’t that a wonderful name?  Thought I would share it with you.  Its the sort of thing one never forgets.
