This plant was originally named C. vulgaris ‘Coccinea‘ but to distinguish it from an earlier cultivar with the same name, the name was amended by adding “Smith’s Variety”. The earliest publication of the name in its amended form that has been traced is the first edition of T L. Underhill, Heaths and heathers (p. 96) published in 1971. Therefore the amended name contravenes the ICNCP (1995, Articles 17.9, 17.15) because it contains both a Latin word and the word variety.The correct name is ‘Derbyshire Crimson‘
