It is easy to fall for the poetry and charm of common plant names Who can resist the romance of plants with names like “Loves-lie bleeding,” “forget-me-not” or “morning-noon-and[night”? However, when understood and used appropriately, botanical Latin can help in understanding the origin of a plant or important characteristics such as its form, color, shape or size. Based on the book “Latin for Gardeners,” this class will explore the reasons to use Latin for plant names and how to use botanical Latin to improve gardening efforts.
