I am a Spanish gardener trying to improve her English language. I have
just discovered your forum which it seems very interesting! My question
is: Is there anyone who can send me a list of plantīs names where I can
match English names with latin names? It would be a very good lesson
for me. Thanks a lot! And sorry for my English (I am trying it)
Your use of the English language is quite good. It is better than what
I have seen from individuals who are native speakers of English.
You might look at the "Dictionary of Botanical Epithets" at
<http://www.winternet.com/~chuckg/dictionary.html . This translatesfrom one of the two parts of a botanical name into the equivalent
English. The Dictionary is oriented towards alpine plants (plants that
grow in the mountains). It gives the origins of name-parts as well as
The U.S. Department of Agriculture has "Plants Database" at
<http://plants.usda.gov/ . There you can enter either a botanical nameor a common name and get the other.
