Excerpt

In 1999, when we talked with gardening friends and nursery owners about our plans for the original version of this book, The Pacific Northwest Plant Locator 1999–2000, the first question from everyone was usually "What are you going to do about nomenclature?" This is a very valid question and a topic about which much could be written, and indeed has been written in books such as the RHS Plant Finder, which we would suggest that you use as a supplementary reference. For those of you unfamiliar with this excellent book, it is the original and the model for other plant finders and locators. Produced by the Royal Horticultural Society of Great Britain, it covers only nurseries found in Britain and is therefore of little use as a plant locator for those of us in North America.

The following is an explanation of how we have handled botanical nomenclature in our books. The most important precept to keep in mind is "one plant, one name."

In our innocence, we thought we could just look up, in various references like the RHS Plant Finder, all the plant names we encountered in nursery catalogs. While this is in the main what we have done, it is not that simple. We have found many, many variations of names for what we believe are the same plants, many plants too new to be listed in references, many not found in those references because they are not sold or grown elsewhere in the country or in the part of the world where those books were written, and many cross-references, as botanists continue to change their assessmentes of what the proeper names of certain plants are. One reason for compiling The Plant Locator® is to help sort out this confusion.
