lpc writes: Okay, I missed the last one. If I could have seen the leaf structure, I would have immediately known it was Pavonia. I grow that plant! Posted: 6:49 pm on February 7th
holodiscus writes: Yes, let's start using Latin names for plants (or at least have both the common and the Latin names) as common names get so confusing, depending on where you live. Great quiz though it could have been a bit more difficult! Posted: 5:29 pm on February 7th
fpmg writes: I agree, pretty easy...was fun tho, thanks :) Posted: 3:25 pm on February 7th
altavitae writes: yes, way too easy.
How about using Latin names...that would be a real test of our memory.
I find that if I go months without using latin names I forget almost all except Echinacea!
Thanks. Posted: 1:40 pm on February 7th
Ruth writes: ESkyscape, we tried to lengthen the window, but our software and the quiz software don't see eye to eye, and this was the best we could do. Jeandabbles and susan 749, you are right. For most gardeners, this isn't a tough quiz. But stay tuned. Future quizzes might take a turn for the diabolical. Posted: 1:28 pm on February 7th
KarenChapman writes: Couldn't resist ; I love a challenge. Have to agree with others though - really TOO easy. Posted: 1:25 pm on February 7th
Jeandabbles writes: Ten out of ten—must have been too easy. Posted: 12:03 pm on February 7th
susan749 writes: I got 100%. I thought it was pretty easy. There was one plant I didn't know (Rock rose) but I guessed it by the process of elimination. Thanks, fun! Posted: 10:13 pm on February 6th
learninghow writes: The quiz was fun. I am really enjoying learning about flowers and trying to learn the latin names. Sites that help with real informations are my favorites. Thanks, Posted: 4:09 pm on February 5th
ESkyscape writes: I was stymied by the quiz until my old eyes noticed the faint scroll bar to the right, so I could see more than just one foil. I suggest lengthening the window, so that all the potential answers are visible at once. Otherwise, Cheers. Posted: 12:12 pm on February 5th
