The romanian name of this is "drãcila"
I atake a look in DEX and I read as fallow:
drãcila: bushy shrub, with pale-green deciduous leaves, etc.
Etymology: slavic "draCi", "dracije"
OK, I found it, I have the etymology , I am happy until I read
in another book this passage:
"Galli popmpedulon, Dacii propedula alii d r o c i l a , Itali
Should I be surprised? Or the best thing to do is to consider
it a more coincidentaly cognates?
