10 plants with rude (but hilarious) names

One of our colleagues sent us an amusing e-mail earlier this week and, to be fair, it made us snigger. So, for something a bit different, here are 10 plants with rude (but hilarious) names. If you are easily offended, we would like to apologise in advance.

1. Stiffcock Botanical name: Diospyros crassenevis

2. Shagbark Botanical name: Carya ovata

3. Cockhold Herb Botanical name: Bidens connata

4. Sausage Tree Botanical name: Kigelia africana

5. Family Jewels Milkweed Botanical name: Asclepias physocarpus

6. Knobweed Botanical name: Hyptis capitata

7. Shaggy Soldier Botanical name: Galinsoga ciliata

8. Sticky Willy Botanical name: Galium aparine

9. Nipplewort Botanical name: Lapsana communis

10. Virgin Thistle Botanical name: Cirsium virginense

Not the most high-brow thing you'll read today but we hope it made you smile.
