Triglan

Post by I'm the 1 on Wed Nov 04, 2009 11:40 am

I've seen S. calcareum ex Triglan listed in quite a number of growing list.

Triglan - what the heck is this?

Some beleive it's Mount Triglav, the highest peak in Slovenia (2864 m).

Triglav means "three headed" - mountan has three peaks, the middle one is the highest. Italian name for it is Tricorno, German one is Terglau. No one seems to call this mountan Triglan - except by mistake. And this mistake is quite often, don't ask me why.

S. calcareum WAS NEVER endemic to Slovenia, so no matter if you call Triglav Triglan - this plant does not come from Slovenia.

Most people suggest name TRIGLENSIS - as a cultivar name or just a form of S. calcareum.
