Well, I don't know most of the Latin names, don't know most of the common names either, but I like the argument Dave is using so I am going to chose that when pointing at a plant, and saying isn't that plant beautiful.

If you WANT to appear stuffy but have no idea what the plant's name is in English or Latin, you could say:

"Isn't that Pulchra?"


* Latin word meaning "beautiful"
Pulcher, (male)
Pulchra, (female)
Pulchrum (? other?)
