Discovering Wild Plant Names by John Stevens
Book DescriptionMany wild plant names originate from early Greek, Latin or Old English and through the ages their original meanings have become misunderstood or unknown. This book aims to bring order to the confusion of botanical classification by tracing the origins of both the popular English names and the scientific names of many of the most common species of wild plants and trees in Great Britain. With detailed line drawings of some of the plants mentioned, John E. Stevens provides a comprehensive glossary of plant names from 'Aaron's rod' to 'Yew', making this a perfect pocket guide for keen gardeners and plant enthusiasts.
