I keep forgetting to make this post.

ANYWAY. Floriography. Azeroth plants. LET'S DO IT

Edit: 10/10/10 -- making this sticky so I can find it. Also adding a link to the thread I had going on wyrmrestaccord.net so I can find said thread and update this from the contents of that.
2/10/17 -- really making this sticky, updating the above link to the wyrmrestaccord.org archive, and adding the archive link for the LoF site that I usually use for Earth plants: In the Garden.

To-do:
* Pull over full list from archived WrA.net thread
* Add flowers in thread replies there not originally included in the top-level list
* Add herbalism plants for Cataclysm – Legion
* Add quest & food plants
* Get meanings(!!!)
* Create table to index meanings for multiple races/groups

This dubious honor exists as it is sometimes planted in places to serve as a cautionary warning as it thrives in desecrated, plagued lands.
