I was going to tell my interested kiddo about the funny name, but then realized the first thing out of her mouth would be "why is it called that?" so I got to thinking hmm...well the flower looks very vessel-like (ladies), and the seed stem kinda looks like (OH!) ok, nevermind...she doesn't need to know about that.....LOL
