Plant comments should provide either general information about the plant or describe your personal experience growing the plant. If you have a question about a botanical name, you can start a new thread in the Plant Database Forum or contact a database moderator or plants administrator. Botanical names must follow the rules of binomial nomenclature. The name you suggest is trinomial. To conform to the rules, it would have to be T. fluminensis f. aurea, T. fluminensis subsp. aurea, or T. fluminensis var. aurea, but not one of these is an accepted name.
