#727 They called me Silene italica, also known as Silene griffithii, Melandrium griffithii, Silene royenii, Cucubalus royenii, and Carpophora viscosa var. krascheninnikovii. I pay homage to the male botanists William Griffith, Royen (I couldn’t find his records), and Krascheninnikov (I couldn’t find his records). They first catalogued me in 1805.
