The demise of the Greenland settlement is a sad, but interesting, story.

I was taught at school that in the early Medievel times, lemon trees were grown in England, and typically Mediterranean flora (such as the lovely myrtle tree) was in abundance.
Nice thought.

Is it true that the Vikings named Iceland and Greenland so, because Greenland was actually icy and Iceland was green, and they wanted to confuse any would-be rivals?
Or is that a myth?
