I understand obsession. I sympathize with anyone who has a plant compulsion, infatuation or mania. Fixating on 'Glencoe', 'Green Beauty', 'Green Mound', 'Green Velvet', or 'Wintergreen'; I can relate. When I worked as a graphic designer, I often challenged myself to use one typeface and only one typeface on a job. When a typeface is well designed, it has myriad possibilities, even though it's ONE typeface. I suppose the same can be said of one genus, which has 70 species.
