Those italic Latin words that come after common plant names are more than mere decoration. Not only can they help gardeners know whether they are talking about bluebells from Scotland (Campanula rotundifolia), England (Hyacinthoides non-scripta), or California (Phacelia campanularia), they also contain a wealth of hidden information. This much expanded version of the Royal Horticultural Society's Latin for Gardeners defines more than 5,000 plant names, from abbreviatus ("shortened") to zonatus ("with bands"). Here too are more than 350 botanical illustrations, features on key plant genera, fact boxes, essays on the significance of Latin names, and an index of common names.
