#165 They called me Canna indica, also known as Canna lambertii, Canna indica var. warszewiczii, Canna altensteinii, Canna warszewiczii, Canna bihorellii, Canna sellowii, Canna indica var. edwardsii, Canna schubertii, Canna poeppigii, and Canna ehrenbergii. I pay homage to the male botanists Aylmer Bourke Lambert, Warszewicz (I couldn’t find his records), Altenstein (I couldn’t find his records), Bihorell (I couldn’t find his records), Sellow (I couldn’t find his records), Edwards (I couldn’t find his records), Schubert (I couldn’t find his records), Eduard Friedrich Poeppig, and Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg. They first catalogued me in 1753.
