Scientific names offer precision and accuracy when identifying plants, but they are also a bit intimidating. Amy Highland, Director of Collections at Mt. Cuba Center, explains how to pronounce botanical names and reveals how they provide an extra layer of understanding about plants: where they come from; who discovered them; what groups they belong to; and even how they were used in native cultures. Learn ways to conquer the secret language of plants and add another level of skill to your gardening talents.
