Lagenophora from the Greek 'lagenos' meaning flask and 'phorus' suffix meaning carries; possibly referring to the urn-shaped cypsela. Huegelii named after Baron Carl von Hugel (1795-1870), an Austrian traveller, plant collector and patron of horticulture.

Seed cleaning:
Place the heads in a tray and leave to dry for a week. Then gently rub the heads by hand to dislodge the seeds. Use a sieve to separate the unwanted material. Store the seeds with a desiccant such as dried silica beads or dry rice, in an air tight container in a cool and dry place.
