Indeed it does - years of Latin and Greek taught me that.
But just because Melissa + Honey Bee in Greek it does not make Melissa officinalis Beebalm.
There is enough confusion in horticulture with 'common names' (for instance I can think of at least three very different plants that are known as 'Old Man's Beard' - from a vigorous climber to a tree to a low growing perennial) without creating new ones!
thank you, Malagrowther.
I only know the practical side of lemon balm, unlike you guys of high learning, what you discussed are all greek to me! lol
Tenuous? I thought you had established that Melissa = Honey bee in Greek?
Hey Jade, those cakes look scrumptious!
yes, i did. just add a spoonful of the chopped herb into the madeleine cake mixture.
