Attention to Detail

Either I made a mistake in my planting or Thompson and Morgan made a mistake in their labelling, but I think this is Allium ostrowskianum and not Allium sphaerocephalon, as I had originally labelled it:

Clusters of delicate purple / pink flowers

Allium ostrowskianum

Why is it important to try and get the name right? If I put the wrong name on it, especially when I am using an accurate-sounding botanical name, it will become part of the sea of misinformation on the web. I ran several searches until I was confident I had identified my labelling mistake; now I have made the Internet a better place (as well as having some gorgeous flowers to enjoy in the garden).
