    Technically true, but I have seen various vendors labeling the plant as fma. flavum in order to avoid confusion.

    And what did your mother tell you about doing something silly just because all the cool kids are doing it?

    I guess I would take exception to the idea that making up a fake name avoids confusion. Or that we should accept sloppy naming practices just because some vendor finds it convenient.

    I didn't mean to imply it's technically correct, just that I've seen it referred to that way in numerous places.
    Try googling it and see what comes up.
