|Is there no acceptable way to separate the widely differing plants in this entry? By widely differing I mean as a visual identification source, not necessarily from a botanical standpoint.

Here are three examples:

|Oh my! Chelle, you are so right! Something needs to be done if possible.
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.

|There are two subspecies of C. intybus. If you can identify any of these photos as C. intybus subsp. intybus or C. intybus subsp. spicatum or as cultivars of C. intybus, they can be moved to those entries. If not, then there's nothing to be done. External differences really are irrelevant. A cocker spaniel doesn't resemble a chihuahua, but both are of the same species.|

|I'm no expert on this, but part of the confusion may be that the third photo shows the winter-forced "chicons" -- I only know this because I want to grow this next year (thank you, Chelle, for offering seeds on the Piggy Swap!). The plant grows as basically a weed thing the first year, then you dig it up, stick the roots in buckets, and keep it cold until you want it to start growing the "chicons." Yeah, it's a long winter here, I'm willing to do almost anything to pretend I'm still gardening
