Country Living Gardener A Gardeners Latin by Richard Bird

Sooner or later every gardener encounters a certain intriguing plant or species that is known by several different legitimate names. Which is the correct one to use, becomes the question. And this is where A Gardeners Latin comes to the rescue. Without presupposing the knowledge of even high school Latin, this charming volume demystifies plant nomenclature. Key Latinate words are translated into English. Cumbersome names are rendered easy to pronounce, usually providing indications of the plants normal habitat, flowering periods, leaf patterns, & all sorts of other useful information. A Gardeners Latin is more reference tool than plain dictionary, with beautiful watercolor-collage illustrations. An introduction explains how plants are classified, then lists plants names. Following pages focus on colors, flower & leaf shapes, fragrance, size, indigenous country, & so forth. A thoughtful gift to tillers of the soil, A Gardeners Latinwill be well appreciated by novices & experts alike.
