I have been translating a book on medical care and I am despe-
rately seek Latin terms for a few plants. Frankly, I need to
know their Czech names but I do not expect to find them in the
dictionaries (I failed in finding them in a 4,000-page Eng-
lish-Czech dictionary). I hope to learn their names in Latin
and then I give it a try to find them in some encyclopedia on
Could anyone help me and write Latin names of these plants?
cherry plum Prunus cerasifera
impatiens probably Impatiens noli-tangere
rock rose ? Helianthemum nummularium
cerato ? ceratophyllum ?
agrimony ? Agrimonia eupatoria or Agrimonia procera
rock water ? rock-cress = Arabis
scleranthus Scleranthus perennis
walnut Juglans regia
water violet Hottonia palustris
white chestnut ? white ? sweet chestnut = Castanea sativa
wild oat Avena fatua
wild rose ? Field rose = Rosa arvensis
red chestnut ? Horse chestnut = Aesculus hippocastrum
wheat germ not a plant

turnip greens "
boston ivy Parthenocissus tricuspidata
castor ivy ? castor oil plant = Ricinus
chokeberry Aronia arbutifolia

I tried to fill in what I knew, hope it helps. Some of the

Much luck -- Chris
I send this message on 30 Dec. Did it ever get there? I have not seen
it on the net so far. Very strange!
