So, confession time - I'm not a gardener. I really know nothing about it, and probably couldn't grow weeds if I tried. That said, I am dating someone who likes gardening, and is rather proud of his work, and he mentioned that he likes old victorian-sounding hyphenated plant names, like "kiss-me-over-the-garden-gate," "Welcome-home-husband-though-never-so-drunk," etc. I'd like to get him one or two of these plants as a gift, but I have no idea where to start. I'm planning on learning a bit about the conditions in his garden, what he has room for, etc, and picking out a plant or two I can lay hands on.
Can anyone give me some ideas of plants that have such absurdly long names that I might be able to find or order from somewhere? Should I get seeds, or a live plant? Any information would be greatly appreciated! My google skills are generally pretty good, but I haven't had any luck, so I thought I could consult some experts.
