Synopsis

Name That Plant An Illustrated Guide by Martin Page

Botanical Latin has become a common language for the dedicated gardener. But for the less experienced the Latin names can appear confusing. However, once you understand the basic rules they are actually rather easy to use. It is quite common for people to refer to plants by either their common or vernacular names. However, the problem is that some genera have hundreds of species, and some common species may have dozens of vernacular names. This book is an ideal reference tool for gardeners regardless of experience. It contains over 6,000 Latin names along with over 2,000 Common names. Over 150 plants illustrated with detailed drawings.
