Alabama lawmakers voting to remove "Confederate" prefix from Confederate Rose and Jasmine plant species.

This Friday, lawmakers from several Alabama Counties will meet to form legislation banning the "Confederate" prefix from local flowering plant Confederate Jasmine and Confederate Rose. The decision to promote this bill comes from the current political climate in the south, and hopes to appease those who would rather not celebrate the rebel forces during the Civil War.

Both plants go by other names besides their confederate nomenclatures, but some have suggested new names for the plants, such as: Not a Honeysuckle, Sinus Killers, or YOLO Hashtag Lit Flower Bro for the Jasmine plant and Union Rose, Alabama Hamma's, and Pom Poms for the Confederate Rose.
