Plants and Flowers for Your Garden, Listed by their Botanical Names

Willy will return you to the home page Occasionally, I am asked why I use botanical names for plants and shrubs
rather than simply calling them by their common name.
To answer the question with an example, let me ask you a question....
Do you have an Elephant ear somewhere in your plant collection?
Is it an Alocasia odora, Colocasia esculenta, Philodendron bipinnatifidum, Haemanthus albiflos, or an Acacia dunnii?
These plants are all commonly called Elephant Ears!
Common names can vary from country to country, and region to region.
The botanical names are used worldwide


Below you will find an index of all the plants that have been profiled on The Garden Helper, using our new Plant Care Icon System
(psst.... This list is rather extensive, so you may want to check out the 'more specific' index pages listed in the left column...)
