The Name Game

Walkin' on the Wild Side
The Name Game
Show Notes

A podcast request by Gabrielle!  We were talking about stories behind some plant names and she thought it would be a good podcast, so here we are!  Some plants get their names for obvious reasons, like pink lady slippers or sunflowers, but some have such unique names, it makes you wonder how they got their names.  Join Marvin and Gabrielle on the front porch to play the name game and explore the how's and why's of some interesting southeastern plants and the stories behind their names.

Here's some additional websites about funny plants and their names:
