  • A Dictionary / Index of Interior Plants

    Dictionary/Index of Interior Plants deals with the common and not so common plants used in interior environments. Numerous popular trees, shrubs, vines and ground covers that are used as potted, specimen, tub, planter, hanging basket, floral design material, water garden, bonsai and terraria in interior plantscapes are considered. The book is written as a quick reference of plant names (common and scientific) rather than a comprehensive taxonomic text for identifying plants. Beginning and commercial growers, plantscapers, interior plantscape designers, teachers, students, researchers, and all lovers of green plants will find it useful in locating a plant along with its currently acceptable scientific name (plus its derivation, meaning and pronunciation). This task is facilitated by cross-referencing of common names of interior plants to their scientific names. Brief descriptions of the plant that are relevant to their interior use are provided to confirm the plant.
