Americans watch an awful lot of TV. So much so, that by adulthood they are able to correctly identify thousands and thousands of US corporate logos but apparently very few North American flowers/plants and other types of flora. We are corporate savvy but ecologically ignorant. But hey, then again, when was the last time you were asked what type of dipterocarpus you wanted in your hamburger? And here are a bunch of well-known corporates (b,c,d,e):

And here are a bunch of well-known corporates (b,c,d,e):
Key for the plants:
a) melati (Jasminum sambac), a small white flower with sweet fragrance
b) the anggrek (Orchid) and
c) the Rafflesia arnoldi – of course.
