Glossary Botanical Name/Common Name

Botanical Name – Genus and species are given. Occasionally a cultivar name follows the species name to further identify the plant. It should be noted that because the naming of plants is not an exact science, botanists sometimes reclassify plants into new genus and species names. When necessary, cross references are given on plants that may be known by more than one botanical name.

Common Name – The most widely used common names for particular plant are given for reference. Again, many plants go by more than one common name.
