A Gardener's Latin

National Trust
Explaining the meaning of 100s of Latin plant names and terms a gardener needs to know. Many Latin names hide the secrets of where the plant is found, its colour, flowering times, leaf pattern, natural habitat and other useful information: if you want a plant for a shady place, choose one with a name ending in sylvestris ('of woods'), while if your garden is dry, look out for the suffix epigeios ('of dry places'), and to steer clear of any plant whose Latin name ends in infestus! Grouped into themed sections - such as plants that are named after famous women, plants that are named after the shape of their leaves, plants that are named after their fragrance or the time of year that they flower.

Hardback, 140 pages.
8" x 5 ", illustrated throughout in full colour.

An easy reference for the Latin names for plants. Gave to an 86 year old gardener who is delighted with the book and I have noticed he has well thumbed the pages.
