Latin Names

I agree with Mary Sue's comments about Latin names.  Whether you can 
pronounce it correctly or not if you know the latin name you can find it in a 
botanical book to get information about the plant.  Another good reason to learn the 
latin name is when you see the plant for $79.99 in a nursery, if you know the 
latin name you can usually find the same plant for a fraction of that cost.   I 
have done this often, and it is my best excuse when people tease me about 
calling plants by their botanical names.  
I am a novice and really really appreciate all of the information so many of 
you put into the PBS
Thanks, Carolyn Craft
