Weeds in my garden : observations on some misunderstood plants by Charles B Heiser( Book )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 432 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The weeds are arranged by family because the author, a retired botany professor, cannot resist trying to turn other people into botanists, and it helps to know something about a plant's relatives. In the mode of his sixteenth-century forebear John Gerard, Charles Heiser discusses each weed according to The Name, common and scientific, The Time and Place, of flowering, and from where the plant originally came, The Description, and The Virtues, in which he relates fascinating weedy tales in a witty, conversational style."
