Index by Common Name

Select a Species

This index shows the common names of herbs which have been photographed to date. Many of the plants have more than one common name. Each name is listed separately, in alphabetical order. Note: Some common names are used to refer to species different than the ones shown here. Common names are therefore not as reliable as botanical names for identification purposes.
