You may find it a little crowded

Bad idea department.

An online nursery based in Raleigh, didn’t like the original name of one of the plants they were selling, so they changed the name to Domestic Violence. You know — because they thought the new name was funny.

What is worse, the reason Plant Delights chose that name is because the plant colors are black and blue.

Yes, bad idea is definitely the department you’re looking for.

    One of my sisters used to work for the owner of that nursery. Let’s just say I’m not surprised he’s this much of an asshole.

    I initially thought the plant they’d renamed might have been Brassica napus, then I read the article. Now I wouldn’t be surprised if they wished the common name wasn’t already taken.

    While I do appreciate gallows humour, and did have a guilty chuckle at this… what the hell were they thinking?
