Let’s look at the scientific name of several common organisms.
Scientific name of a cat = Felis domesticus
Scientific name human = Homo sapien
Scientific name of a dog = Canis lupus familiaris
What does a scientific name tell us?
The name is a two part name. A fancy word for this is called “ binomial nomenclature.”
The first part of the name is the Genus and the second part is the species domesticus.
Humans belong in the genus Homo and the species sapien.

Plant-based names would follow the same rules when creating a scientific name for plants.
