Nancy says: who uses the proper botanical names for a coleus or tomato? Not me! Who knows for sure how to pronounce Heuchera or Agastache? Again, not me. Who is an expert on plant names? Yet again, not me. We gardeners are all in the same garden bed. But come and learn how Latin plant names work, hear rules-of-thumb for pronunciation (and many names pronounced) and discover some names with interesting or funny meanings and histories. Or just look at my 100 pretty photos of flowers.
