Helpful hint for using the search engines below: type in just the first part of the name you're interested in and you'll be more likely to get a match.
For example: you want the botanical name of "forget-me-not." Should you enter it that way (with dashes), or with spaces instead of dashes, or as one word ("forgetmenot")? Answer: none of the above. Just enter "forget". Remember, less is more.
