A Meaning to an End

jomama254Jomama254 on 01/31/2015

Trivia Quiz A plants botanical name is always written with the genus first, followed by the species, then followed by either the variety or cultivar name.
But oftentimes there will be a word after the species, or maybe the species itself, that describes a distinct characteristic of the plant, such as its color, size, growth habit, origin, etc.
This gives a clue to what the plant looks like and aids in the ID process.

See if you can match the species name to the correct description in the following
10 questions.

Please rate it at the end, thanks.
