If they are display gardens they should appreciate someone telling them the tag is wrong. They don't usually want to mislead the public. You can send them a nice email. I have let a couple of vendors know they have the wrong name for a picture and they have been very gracious about it.

I will let them know next time I am there .
Can't e-mail a lot of the greenhouses and gardens around here are Amish or similar and they don't do computers
They do however do plants very well Thumbs up
