Primula veris,Campanula rotundifolia, Verbascum thapsus, Armeria maritime, Only those few of us who are botanists will be able to identify behind the technical nomenclature the flowers known to the majority by less formidable titles: Cowslip, Bluebell, Mullein, Thrift. But the number will be even less of those who can penetrate into the lost world concealed by the popular names: they are so long with us we imagine they are part of a permanent tradition. Maybe you have heard of the growing trend to plant flowers that have original names reflecting the life of the virgin mother Mary. So much can be gained from learning about the history of our favorite plants and trees. Backyardgardener is the Largest Gardening Store in the World.
