As a comment about Lily Of The Valley Bush (Pieris japonica 'Forest Flame'), HemNorth wrote:

For forty years, I've known this plant as Pieris japonica, this variety being 'Forest Flame'.

Would it be all right to have an alternate or synonymous name listed as such, for us "Old Timers", so that when we searched for it, it would be acknowledged?

Thank you.

I haven't found any indication that 'Forest Flame' is a different species from P. japonica or any indication that it's a hybrid, so I've added japonica to the name of the entry.

Thank you, zuzu, for adding the word 'japonica' into the name. It sounds better now.
