German Mary Plants

Full text pdf

The following is a listing of Flowers of Our Lady from Heinrich Marzell's Deutsches Worterbuch der Pflanzennamen, Leipzig, 1927 - 1979.

In this listing we include both the original German religious names and English translations of them. It is to be noted that whereas the Flowers of Our Lady from English research are predominantly "Lady" names, with a few "Mary", "Madonna" and "Virgin" names, those from the German include numerous "Jungfrau" (Virgin) and "Muttergottes" (Mother of God) names, as well as "Marien" (Mary) names.

The plants have been checked against the U. S. botanical listing of "Hortus III", and those few genera and species not found there have been indicated by parentheses.
