The Q&A Archives: Translate Latin Names To Find Common Names?

Question: I have bought a can of mixed flower seeds which are identified only with latin names. I don't recognize many and wonder if the others I have puzzled out are right.
Where can I go to on the net to find this "flower dictionary"?

Answer: I do not know specifically of an online flower cross reference as you have described, however, a quick search using the google search engine and entering the Latin name as the search term should bring up numerous references, most of which will mention the common name if there is one. Alternatively you can ask at the Q&A and someone will look them up for you. (smile)
