Probably, I know, I still have a lot to learn, but I think it will not work with me.
I can memorize the names only for a day or 2 ;-))

It's not too hard ;) some species have the same flower and are very similar and need to look leaves, calyx, fruit to determinate them...

I am a little bit better informed in garden plants than wild plants, it's so difficult to determine precisely.
