  • 132. Methodology
    • I have used Nachinarkuiniyar commentary to identify flower names which is not in usage now. I have used Tamil Lexicon to find the scientific names/Latin names. Using Google images I have found images for the flowers. Since Google images is not a very accurate source, I have gone through various other websites to confirm the common name and the scientific/Latin name. The list here is mostly accurate and I have mentioned comments in the places I have varied from Lexicon or Nachinarkiniyar commentary. Some flowers mentioned here are categories (it could mean lot of flowers) rather than a flower itself. I have created disambiguation page for these flowers. Finally for serious readers I have provided a further study page which have link to more details on each flower. I have tried to provide common name, scientific name and alternate Tamil name for each entry. If any reader finds any discrepancies please inform me so that I can update it.
