In the latin name of a plant, for example Trifolium pratense or Red Clover, the first name is the genus of the plant (the plural of which is 'genera'), the second name is the species name. Red Clover belongs to the Pea (Fabaceae) family.

Not all plants in the same family share the same genus. Thus the Pea Family consists of several genera some of which are Astragalus, Oxytropis, Anthyllis, Ornithopus and Hippocrepis. All members of the same genera share some of the same characteristics.

If you click on one of the genera, a Pop Out Page [POP] will attempt to list of all of the species in that genera, produced courtesy of the website of the BSBI [Botanical Society of the British Isles].

If you simply want to see flowers in this website under a certain Genus name, then please look in the Subject Index.
