Publisher Comments:

This little book provides a humorous reference for the gardener who wishes to avoid being horticulturally incorrect when it comes to proper pronunciation of the botanical names of plants. For those curious about the meanings of all those words describing the plant's singular attributes, a secondary glossary is provided for enlightenment. The author has added an extra twist with whimsical, quirky illustrations resembling antique engravings to amuse and inspire other gardeners to make the most of the lingua botanica.
