  • Comment on (A): ? Origanum majorana L., marjoram, Majoran

    The L lemma denotes marjoram (Gk σάμφυχον; cf. Berendes 1902,290) but was obviously confused with SAMBUCUS 'elder, Hollunder', cf.ellen and →ellen-wyrt.

  • Comment on (B): ? Sambucus nigra L., elder, Schwarzer Holunder

    The name 'king's wort, Königswurz' is a very unusual name for both plants and it is not recorded neither in NHG nor ModE. Therefore it cannot be decided if it is simply a wrong interpretation of the L lemma or if it is a synonym of →ellen.
