Isn’t that the plant with the abnormal discharge?

Like many gardeners, I spend a lot of time advising friends who are new to gardening. And sometimes the conversations turn hysterical. Like the time I was over at a friend’s new apartment, and she was wondering what to plant on her large balcony. “Think vertical,” I suggested. “You could plant a climbing vine to disguise that drainpipe, for example.”

“That’s a great idea,” she exclaimed. “I’d love grow a pot of chlamydia!”

I’ve often thought that some Latin names sound like STDs!
