The following are the common names of plants I cover beginning with the letters "S" or "T." As soon as you locate the plant you're seeking information on, click its link. You will then arrive at a page that discusses its growing requirements and other pertinent data in detail.
Examples of plants you will find below are St. Johnswort, shamrocks and tansy. Let me relate some interesting facts about these three before we get going. Regarding St. Johnswort, did you ever wonder why so many common names of plants end in "wort"? The fact is, "wort" comes from the Old English word for "plant" and is used as a suffix for some of our oldest common plant names (especially the monikers for plants with medicinal uses). As for "shamrocks," my article explains why, in a sense, this term refers more to an idea than to a specific plant. Finally, did you know that tansy -- an herb used traditionally to repel ants -- is toxic?
