Book - Latin for Gardeners by Peter Parker
How did the delphinium get its name? Which parts of the body lend their names to auriculas and orchids? Who are the gentian, lobelia and heuchera named after? Why are nasturtiums and antirrhinums connected? What does an everlasting pea have to do with Indian miniature paintings?These are some of the questions answered in Peter Parker's adventurous exploration of the mysteries of Botanical Latin.
