  Garden Bookworm editor's notes:  
This is the only guide needed to find the name of a plant. Using whichever name is already known -- common or botanical -- readers will quickly find the name needed using the extensive cross-reference lists. From alpines to trees and shrubs, from houseplants to wild flowers, this essential gardening reference covers an amazing 30,000 terms over 448 pages, all in a compact, easy-to-carry size:

- Quickly find the common or botanical equivalents of plant names
- Easily convert common plant names to their botanical equivalents -- and vice versa
- Inclusive coverage of North American, European and UK common names, plus earlier versions of common names
- Explanations of Latin help to identify whole groups of plants at a glance
- Convenient pocket-sized format, with a wipe-clean flexibind cover, makes it easy to carry along on visits to the garden center or nursery
