RE: Latin names

I also did a search for 'rampion' and came up with a few sites. I guess it's all in the spelling!

Here is a link that might be useful: rampion

RE: more on Latin names

I did a Google search for 'toadflax' and note that there are several species. Check out some of the sites at the link below and decide for your self which one you've got or want.

RE: Latin names

Thank you, ladies.
The spelling mistake was not mine :-) I saw it in a book "The Concise Herbal Encyclopedia" by Donald Law.

RE: Latin names

Round headed rampion: Phyteuia tenericum or P.orbiclare
spiked rampion P.spicatum
Common toadflax:Linauria vulgaris
Rampion was the herb that wasstolen from Rumplestiltskin.
Hope this is of some help.
