Is there any meeting on the minds as to which is the proper name of
the composite family, Compositae vs. Asteraceae ??
"The Families of Flowering Plants", by L. Watson and M. J. Dallwit,
But the RHS "Index of Garden Plants" uses Asteraceae.
And these are our two principal authorities. ;-)
Any input would be appreciated.
