Excerpt from The Commonly Occurring Wild Plants of Canada, and More Especially of the Province of Ontario: A Flora for the Use of Beginners A few words will t be out of place by way of preface to the List of Common Canadian Plants contained in the fol lowing pages. It will be observed that the List is confined to wild plants, the exclusion of cultivated Species having been determined on, partly because of the difficulty of kw ing where to stop when an enumeration of them has once been entered upon, and partly because it was thought that, on the whole, more important results would be attained by directing attention exclusively to the denizens of our own woods and fields. What is really desired is, to create among our young people an interest in the Botany of Canada, and it seems t unreasonable to h0pe that this end may be better attained by placing within their reach some such handy volume as the present, dealing only with such plants as grow spontaneously within our limits.
