Have you ever misread a plant label?

My late mother was a superb gardener and knew a great deal about many plants. However she was rather stumped when she saw a pot full of Morning Glory (Ipomea) seedlings in my greenhouse and asked " what's this one pomea?" I have a little chuckle every time I see a Morning Glory now.

Ooh never heard of that.
What does it do we ask.
Ooops ! Misprinted label...should read Gunnera prorepens.
Well we just had to buy it.
Fab little plant.
Since then all Gunnera are now Unnera's.
