#364 They called me Iresine diffusa, also known as Iresine endlichii, Iresine mutisii, and Alternanthera forsstroemii. I pay homage to the male botanists Endlich (I couldn’t find his records), José Celestino Bruno Mutis, and Forsstroem (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1806.
