Is there a way to add the common name "Morea Lily" to Dietes iridioides? In my neck of the woods, most (at least older) people still call it a Morea Lily rather than Moraea or Dietes. I went to its page but cannot see a way to add a common name. (Gosh, I am starting to feel very guilty always asking for something - I am so sorry).

Go to the entry, click on "Edit plant name," add the common name you want, and submit the proposal. As soon as it's approved, the name will be added to the entry.

I apologize - I had gone to "edit the plant details" not "edit the plant name". However, I just went to add it now and see that someone already has. So... thank you to whoever added it. I sure do appreciate it!

I think Evan added it. He's sneaky that way. Always doing good deeds without taking any credit for them. Big Grin

If you ever want to try it as a potted plant, let me know and I will send you a hunk of it.

Thank you for the very generous offer OldGardener. A friend of mine grows a related Dietes but unfortunately my houseplant space is very limited. Another beauty I get to admire here on the ATP.
