      Yes, when the taxonomists change the Latin names of these plants and make us learn a new name for the same old plant, I usually wait a couple of years, and then if it seems like the new naming is sticking, I change it and put the olkd Latin in the “alternate names” area.

      Can it compete in a rain garden with elderberry?
