NOTE: herbaceus,-a,-um (adj.A), q.v., "herbaceous, i.e. grass-green or yellow-green in color, or green and slightly fleshy, [succulent], as opposed to faded, colorless and dry, particularly with reference to bracts, or with annual usually juicy stems as opposed to perennial woody stems" (Stearn).

 

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