What are the botanical names for plants?

Plants have names. In fact they have quite a few, and they're absolutely mind-boggling! Buckle up as we delve into the rabbit hole of botanical names for flora. It’s time to dive into the wild world of nature's vocabulary!

Getting Acquainted With Botanical Names:

Botanical names are essentially scientific monikers for plants that scientists from all over the planet use to discuss them. Just like humans, every plant has their own unique name. This aids those in the field in terms of identification and classification.

Why Botanical Names Are Essential:

They serve a few purposes besides being astronomically long words that you’d never catch me trying to pronounce: One, they eliminate confusion by making sure there is no overlap with other species who might go by the same common name yet differ completely in botany. Two, scientists can communicate using these names regardless of what language they speak. And three, they’re just really cool to learn about and give us an even greater appreciation for how diverse plant life can be!

Taking A Look At Botanical Art And Aromatherapy:

Botanical names also play a role in botanical art and aromatherapy believe it or not! Artists lean on these long labels to create accurate illustrations that encapsulate the true essence and beauty each one possesses. On the other hand essential oils extracted from different plants are used to make extremely pleasant scents in botanical diffusers. At DeannaJoyArt we celebrate this beauty through our botanical art and botanical diffusers — both require little energy but still manage to bring your nose joy!

Congratulations on reaching today’s lesson’s grand finale! If you weren’t already aware of why plants have such exhausting titles, now you do! Whether you’re taking some time out of your day to admire an artist's masterpiece or simply sitting back while fragrances fill your home — be sure to take a moment and appreciate this natural world around you — it’s absolutely amazing.
