A Grammatical Dictionary of Botanical Latin

 
tinctorius,-a,-um (adj.A): used in dying.

Anthemis tinctoria L. 'used in dyeing;' Pisolithus tinctorius, a mushroom; Symplocos tinctoria “used as a dye” (Fernald 1950); Echinodontium tinctorium, “the common name, Indian Paint Fungus, comes from the belief that it was used as a source of dye by the Indians of the Pacific Northwest” (Miller 1977).

“This is by no means a full list of the medicinal articles of the class Diadelphia. Several others might be mentioned f. But it will be more advantageous to ol serve, that this class furnishes us with some very important ‘plantae tinctoriae,’ or dying plants. Such is the Indigofera tinctoria [i.e. source of the dye ‘indigo’] (Barton). “... from the leaves, &c. of the Podalyria tinctoria, or Wild Indigo, a coarse, some what violet-coloured, fecula, which was applied to the purposes of indigo,, was prepared by the people in some parts of the United States, during the time of the revolutionary war. The branches of Genista tinctoria, or Dyer's Broom, are employed to give a yellow colour. (Barton).

 

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