Unnamed plants

There are quite a few plants in the National Collection for which the name hasn’t yet been decided or given. A few of the plants we have are as listed below.

There are also a great many named species which have not been accepted (yet) or have been deemed a variety or subspecies of another named species; or indeed the same as another species. A few of these are listed below. More will be added in due course, once we have photographs of flowering plants.

The plants we grow are undergoing evolutionary radiation with small populations becoming isolated due to mountains, human or grazing activity. The “species” concept does not work very well for these plants, so there are always going to be arguments about naming.
