Jim, nice examples!

I have two small edits.

There two sets of alternate names we typically supply: Synonyms and Other Common Names.
Synonyms in botany are alternate genus/species names which might have been associated with a particular specimen in the past. (Renaming due to taxonomical changes occurs frequently in botany.) In my S. dioca example I had mislabeled Other Common Names as Synonyms. So I have corrected it there and in your example. There do not seem to be any Synonyms for S. dioca.

You must supply your own Comment. It can be anything. For example, something interesting you read about the flower, where you found it, what your impression of it is, what the flower might be used for, its rarity or not, a brief description of its UV signature, some unusual characteristic the flower might have or anything else you might like to say. Need not be lengthy.

Thanks Andrea

I’ll add some comments later. To me this is archetypal of summer in the English countryside.
