Funny you should mention that, because the seed company that I got RP from had renamed several of the seeds they offered. And they freely talked about that, saying 'I really like so and so breeder so I re-named this for them', and there were quite a few renamed things on the website. Most of the re-naming was in honor of people they liked.And when I googled 'Rose Potpourri' sweet corn I discover this:
Another company changing the name to confuse us all.
Oh well, if we think about it this has always been the case with any plant. Name any perennial and there is probably half a dozen names they go by, same for herbs. Plants occupy a wide geographical territory, especially useful cultivated ones, so it comes with the territory. It's like a story that changes depending on who's telling it.
