Wildflowers - Common Names

This is a list of all of the Common Names of species that appear on this site.

A note about Common Names
Common names of plants vary widely from region to region, from person to person, and from book to book. The common names I have used for each species on this website are usually the ones from Newcomb's Wildflower Guide. There are some exceptions, however (for example, what I call Heath Aster (Symphyotrichum ericoides) is not what is listed as "Heath Aster" in Newcomb's).

I have included in this list all the common names that I am aware of. Therefore, a species may be listed here more than once.

There is also on this site a list of just the common names I have used to identify each species on this site (each species listed only once). CLICK HERE to go to that list.
