In the name of Queen

February 1, 2013

The history of certain plants’ names’ origin are quite interesting. For instance, the plant was named Strelitzia by the English botanist Josef Banks. Having received an unusual South-African flower the ravished botanist exclaimed: «Such a royal flower ought to bear a royal name!» He named the plant Strelitzia reginae, that is «Royal Strelitzia», in the name of his friend and English king George III’s wife – queen Sophia Charlotte of Mecklenburg-Strelitz.
