As a comment about Banana Shrub (Magnolia figo), hortitoity wrote:

I have never heard of this described as Banana shrub, I know it only as Port Wine Magnolia or latin Michaelia figo. I wonder if these labels could be added beside Banana Shrub, for easy identification purposes???? I trained as a Horticulturist and was taught it to be Port Wine Magnolia, Michaelia figo. thank you

You're misspelling Michelia figo, which is already included in this entry as a synonym. If you want to add Port Wine Magnolia as a common name, you can propose its addition by clicking on "Edit plant name."

In general, however, plant comments should provide information about the plant, either your personal experience in growing the plant or more general information about the plant's characteristics. Your remarks would have received a quicker response if you had presented them in the form of a new thread in the Plant Database Forum.
