Scientific Names of Plants

Database of Scientific Names of Plants: An Alphabetical Listing

By

The binomial system that gives us the scientific names of plants may be frustrating at times (as when the powers that be change their minds as to what a plant should be called), but it still offers a clarity superior to what the common names provide. Below is the index to specimens I cover on this website, grouped by scientific name, in alphabetical sections. For example, if you're searching for information on Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus', scroll down to where you see "M-N" and click the link. You'll be brought to a page with links for scientific names of plants beginning with one of those letters:
