It being subjective is true, but the real problem
is even worse. It was never really the purpose
of ME MS herbals to create lookalikes of the
plants, so the same objection could be applied
to a great many ME herbal drawings which are
known to represent a particular plant (the text
being readable).
I'm not a medieval herbal expert, but the above
statement comes not from me, but from people who 
are (were).
