It would have been helpful if the author had grouped the plants by type instead of name. For example, Althea and Rose of Sharon are listed separately with some of the same meanings and some different meanings but they are the same plant.
The entry for "Joy" lists oxalis, shamrock, sorrel and wood sorrel, again, the same plant.
There are also some entries that contain such obscure names that I had to look them up (unusual because I'm a plant geek). Who knew that "High John the Conqueror" is another name for morning glory and bindweed; or that "Black Sampson" is simply an old name for Coneflowers? Some plant names such as "Lucky Hand," "Sacred Plant," "Magic Flower" and others could refer to any number of different plants depending on where and when you lived.
I would say the author did a good job pulling the information together but I would love to see some context, to give it more depth and meaning.
