These thumbnails link to my plant photograph sets on Flickr. There are photographs I have taken of plants, with information about recognizing and naming them, including meanings of Latin names.

I took these pictures at the Hahn Horticulture Garden and Horticulture Department Greenhouses at Virginia Tech, Blacksburg VA, (USA Zone 6b)
