In our DB listing for Woodland Tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris) it has a trade name listed (Trade Name: Only the Lonely).

Woodland Tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris)

We also have a listing for a Nicotiana sylvestris cultivar named 'Only the Lonely'.

Woodland Tobacco (Nicotiana sylvestris 'Only the Lonely')

Should these be merged?

Thanks for the heads up Rob. While the RHS lists 'Only the Lonely' as a synonym of the species I've found enough equally reputable sources which note it as a distinct variety to remove the name from the species entry.

That's what I figured. Seemed odd to have a species rather than a cultivar with a 'trademarked' name.
