Also important to stayed tuned to your senses. I have detected toxic plants by holding them in my tongue and feeling what it transmits. One time felt extremely obvious because body immediately rejected it and I spit it out. I researched and found it was a type of highly toxic nightshade. I'm not saying to only relay on senses, but gotta be alert that way too :) Nice post and great information.

The common names can get so confusing, sometimes. Take plantain for one. Talk to one person and they're thinking of that stringy leaved weed, but another is thinking bananas. Another is artichoke (thankfully they're both edible though). I mention Jerusalem artichoke and people think of the thistle.

Such an important reminder! I remember someone talking to me about what she called "Mountain Holly." I'm thinking red berries... but when she finally showed me the actual plant, I was like, OH!!! You mean mahonia!!! With sour bluish berries that are wonderful against strep throat!

Thanks for this heads up on using the proper identification for plants with the genus, species, and cultivar.
I use to do a lot of seed trading where people would use common names and it would be so frustrating to get something that was not at all what you expected!
Great info to know!
