Comment
Verticordia lindleyi subsp. purpurea has a species name after John Lindley (1799 – 1865), an English professor of botany who described many Australian species from collections sent to England by explorers and a subspecies name from the Latin purpureus (deep red, purple) from the flower colour. The type collection was gathered near Woodanilling in Western Australia in 1984 by Elizabeth Berndt. It has been successfully grafted onto Chamelaucium species rootstocks.
