Synopses & Reviews
Encompassing 20,000 entries in an A-Z format, Flora's Plant Names is the perfect addition to the library of amateur gardeners and horticulturists alike. It features a comprehensive double-referencing system, whereby plants with common names of more than one word are included under both the standard and inverted forms of their name (e.g. Pinus engelmannii would be included under Apache pine and Pine, Apache). Gardeners will find this book especially useful when looking for particular plants at nurseries and in seed catalogs, as they will be able to search by both common and botanical name.
