The Firefly Dictionary of Plant Names:
Common and Botanical
Simple, concise and complete with 30,000 botanical terms, you are sure to find the names of plants here.

Arranged in 14 logical groups such as aquatics, bulbs, herbs, house and garden plants, trees, bushes, shrubs and wildflowers.

The lists include the North American, European and U.K. terms plus earlier versions of their common names.

A special section of six pages explains frequently encountered Latin epithets used for the botanical terms. This is helpful as the Latin is used to describe key features of plants. For example 'zibethinus' in its name is evil smelling, 'velox' is fast growing, 'pannosus' is scruffy and 'lepidus' is elegant and slender.

An excellent resource for both amateur and professional.
