#437 They called me Jasminum elongatum, also known as Jasminum horsfieldii, Jasminum evansii, Jasminum aemulum var. brassii, Jasminum esquirolii, and Jasminum forstenii. I pay homage to the male botanists Thomas Horsfield, Brass (I couldn’t find his records), Esquirol (I couldn’t find his records), Forsten (I couldn’t find his records), and Alexander William Evans, Arthur Humble Evans, or William Edgar Evans. They first catalogued me in 1797.
