1st ed.

Botanical names can be baffling to even the most experienced gardener. But a plant's botanical name is more than just a handy label--it can tell a plant's country of origin, the shape of its leaves, the color of its petals, and much more.

The A to Z of Plant Names clears the confusion and allows every gardener to name plants with confidence. This comprehensive yet handy guide features the botanic names of the plants that gardeners really grow. Additional information includes suggested pronunciation, the common name, the derivation of the scientific name, the number of species currently accepted, the type of plant and the distribution.

The A to Z of Plant Names helps demystify names, provides readers with the intriguing background information to naming conventions, and empowers gardeners everywhere to feel confident about naming plants.
