Gardener's Latin: A Lexicon
Author Bill Neal has weeded through the Latin words that describe and distinguish among plants and flowers and compiled a single volume of select definitions and gardening lore. As Latin terms appear with increasing frequency on nursery tags and the pages of gardening catalogs, we need such brief, clear definitions for the finite number of Latin terms that combine to form the names of a seemingly infinite number of plant species. Equally welcome are the little-known horticultural facts and fables which fill the broad margins of every page.
