Plant names can be descriptive

The species name can sometimes help you to distinguish between plants  - plantains can be broad-leaved (Plantago major, greater plantain) or narrow-leaved (Plantago lanceolata, lance shaped leaves). Magnolia grandiflora has large white goblets of flower, Magnolia stellata ragged star-shaped flowers.
