Botanical names are also important when traveling abroad. No matter where you are in the world the botanical name (within the horticulture industry) is the same. So, technically speaking, if you're in Japan and don't speak Japanese, you can still name all of the plants in the landscape in Latin and a Japanese horticulturist (or anyone knowledgeable w/i the trade) would know exactly what you're talking about.

I'd suggest that you find books tailored to your zone. Another site that I use frequently is the monrovia site.
