No vngarden your knowledge especially of culivated plants is far ahead of mine. There was a time I would take no interest in cultivated plants, would just concentrate on wild plants of Himalayas, and some cultivated trees and shrubs (http://www.indianforester.co.in/index.php/indianforester/art...)
only in last 4-5 yearly and mainly after retirement in 2010 I have started taking some interest in cultivated plants, more so after I am on a five month visit to California (Sunnyvale). I have many plants from here that would need your expertise.
