First published in 1931 by renowned horticulturalist Arthur Johnson, Plant Names Simplified is an established classic. Presented in a glossary format, this pocket-sized reference book gives the name, pronunciation, and classification of common plants and the meaning behind the Latin origins of the name. This enables the reader to learn how the terms should be spelled and pronounced correctly, and provides an explanation of why plants like Helianthus hirsutus is so called-because it is hairy! Plant Names Simplified (3rd Ed.) will be a reliable resource for gardeners of all abilities, park managers, botanists, ecologists, garden designers and horticultural practitioners, and students.
