Sunday Quiz – Plants Named After Places

London Planes

Dear Readers, have you ever noticed how many plants are named after cities or countries? This week, your mission (should you choose to accept it) is to match the name of the country/city to the photo of the plant. One mark for a correct match, one for naming the plant correctly.

As usual, answers in the comments by 17.00 UK time on Friday 26th November please, with the answers published on Saturday 27th November. I shall ‘disappear’ the responses as soon as I see them, but as always, I would counsel you to write down your answers first, in case you might be influenced by the brilliance of those who have gone before.

So, if you think that the name of the first plant indicates that it’s from London, your answer would be A) 1)

Onwards!
