Meow 😸 Friday back the heading "Origin of plants" 🤓 we talked about Linneo, today we talk about the meaning of the name of the plants. Plant names can arouse greater interest if you know anything about their meaning. There are commemorative names: Fuchsia, for example, is a tribute to Leonhart Fuchs, doctor and German herbalist. Other names reveal the place of origin of a plant, for example parrotia persica (of Persia, today Iran). Some plants bring the name of the one who started the cultivation: the primrose forrestii was introduced by George Forrest. Or the names tell us something about their characteristics: Pelargonium derives from the Greek Pelargos (stork), and indeed its fruits remember the storks; quinquefolia, the attribute of parthenocissus quinquefolia, means that the foliage consists of five leaves, from the Latin William (" five ") and folium (" Leaf ").
