Don't have the foggiest idea what the true botanical name is.

Will you be saving seed?  Will you have any to barter?  (I don't want to
bother Miz Lillian right now for seeds, she's got enough on her mind).  I'd
love some seed if you will have any to spare... I'll have tons of annual
flower seed to swap, I've also got radish seeds (cherry belle and easter
egg mix), am also working on drying some Kentucky Wonder and Purple Peacock
climbing beans.

I'll save you several chiles for seed if you want. Can't guarantee they
will breed true though, I had several varieties planted close together and
didn't bother to separate them at bloom time. Might have some of the seed I
got from Lillian still in the refrigerator, will look and see. Drop me a
private email with your snail mail and I'll get them in the mail to you.
Any old annual flower seed will do, Miz Anne do love them flowers.
