A-Z Listing of Houseplants - Indoor Plants - by Common Names 




As with more or less all plants, houseplants are blessed with a number of different names. It all depend which part of the world - or even which part of your country you live. It may even depend upon which generation you belong to!

The botanical names of houseplants are always (?) correct, but of course they are mostly Latin, and not easy to remember. Neither are they particularly descriptive - unless you can speak Latin!

Common names  such as 'Creeping Jinny' are much easier to remember. The problem occurs when a specific plant is blessed with two - maybe three common 'nicknames'!

Do you know 'Flaming Katy' for instance!
