Common Names of Plants - A-B

Common Names From Adonis to Butterfly Bush


The following are the common names of plants I cover beginning with the letters "A" or "B." Click any of the links below to access information about that particular species or cultivar.

Some of the highlights on this page are 'Arctic Beauty' kiwi, beautyberry and bluebeard. Kiwi vines exhibit two-toned spring foliage: a striking pink and the frosty white that suggested the cultivar name. Beautyberry offers fall berries in the rather unusual color of purple. Bluebeard blooms late -- just when our landscaping can use the extra color.
