A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
Rose-hip: see cynarrhodium, cynarrhodion, cynarrhodum.
Rose: rosa,-ae (s.f.I), abl. sg. rosa; Gk. rhodon,-i (s.n.II), abl. sg. rhodo.

Rosa,-ae L. (s.f.I); R. setigera, R. bracteata, R. canina. Tribe Roseae Griseb.; subgenus Eurosa Focke. Family Rosaceae.

NOTE: in the genus Agrostemma, Linnaeus (1753) used "coeli-rosa" and "coronaria" as nouns” (K. Gandhi, pers. comm.), hence A. coeli-rosa and A. coronaria.
rose-colored, rosy: rhodeus,-a,-um (adj.A), ‘of roses, like a rose, rosy;’ rosans,-antis (part.B); roseus,-a,-um (adj.A); rosulentus,-a,-um (adj.A), rose-colored, rosy; erubescens,-entis (part.B) 'reddening' has the same meaning; rosulentus,-a,-um (adj.A), rose-colored, rosy; rose, “a variable color averaging a moderate purplish red that is redder and paler than violine pink, magenta rose, average fuchsia rose, or average raspberry rose, redder and stronger than mallow, and bluer and paler than solferino” (WIII);

- splendor rosulentus, rose-colored splendor or glossiness, rosulent splendor.

pale rose-colored: rhodellus, rhodiolus; rosellus, q.v.; roseolus; but not rosulatus,-a,-um (adj.A). Words in rosul- relate to rosettes: see rosula,-ae (s.f.I).

Sphaeria rosella (fungus).
rose-, rosy-, rose-red (adj.); cf. ‘rhod-, rhodo-;’

in L. comp., roseo-;

- roseocinctus, rosy-edged; roseiflorus, rosy-flowered; roseiflorus should not be confused with rosiflorus or, less correctly, rosaeflorus, 'having flowers like a rose' (Stearn); roseostamineus, with rose-red stamens.

Achillea roseo-alba, a rosy-white; Echeveria roseiflora.

NOTE: the prefix rosei- is somewhat problematic as there are epithets in ‘rosei’ which is a genitive singular - perhaps a person’s name?: e.g. Crataegus rosei; (Crassulaceae:) Bryophyllum rosei; Echeveria rosei; Kalanchoe rosei; Sedum rosei. Note there are botanists with Rose as a surname: Lewis Samuel Rose, Hugh Rose, Joseph Nelson Rose. Note that Rosea C. F. P. Martius (1826) and Rosea Klotzsch (1853) both honor Valentin Rose, “German apothecary of the 19th century” (TL2).

in Gk. comp., rhod-, rhodo-, q.v.;

- rhodocraspedus, rosy-edged; rhodanthus, rosy-flowered; rhodostomus, with a red mouth or opening.
-rose (noun): in Gk. comp. -rhodos,-i (s.f.II), -rhodon,-i (s.n.II); see -rhodos,-i (s.f.II).
rose, resembling a: rhodopsis,-e (adj.B), rosaceus,-a,-um (adj.A), roseus,-a,-um (adj.A).

 

A work in progress, presently with preliminary A through R, and S, and with S (in part) through Z essentially completed.
