Flowers for Geeks

Ok, if you’re a plant geek like me, they’re *all* flowers for geeks, but…

Bulb catalogues just started arriving, and I was struck by two new Asiatic lilies with high-tech names: Lilium ‘Dot Com‘ and L. ‘White Pixels‘. It got me wondering how many other computer-themed plant varieties there are out there.

Two that came to mind immediately (and maybe I’m dating myself here) were the ‘Big Blue’s – Lilyturf and sea holly (Liriope & Eryngium ‘Big Blue’). A quick search also yielded Kniphofia “Ada” and
Clematis ‘Countess of Lovelace’, and there’s always Lilium ‘Mona Lisa’ for the William Gibson fans.
