Mislabled plants..common incognito names?

Do we know any "good" plants that are sold under the incorrect names? Well, maybe not incorrect, but names we aren't accusomed to seeing.

Reason I ask is b/c last week I bought; "Gartenmeister Fuschia" that was being sold under the name; "Honeysuckle Fuschia". If I hadn't already owned the plant in the past I would have passed it by.

For someone like me who does not know them very well by sight yet, this will behelpful information.

Thanks! :-)

RE: Mislabled plants..common incognito names?

Plants are regularly mislabeled, and sometimes the names seem to be made-up. I have seen plenty of names that I don't think properly apply to any plant, let alone the one to which the label is attached. However, Honeysuckle Fuchsia is a name that I have seen used for Fuchsia triphylla/Gartenmeister Bonstedt fuchsias.
