#193 They called me Lolium perenne, also known as Lolium marschallii, Lolium trabutii, Lolium gmelinii, and Lolium perenne subsp. trabutii. I pay homage to the male botanists Marschall (I couldn’t find his records), Trabut (I couldn’t find his records), and Johann Friedrich Gmelin, Johann Georg Gmelin, Samuel Gottlieb Gmelin, or Carl Christian Gmelin. They first catalogued me in 1753.
