Google you are not even trying. These are 12 different plants, and I don't think any of them are St John's wort.



This isn't about Finnish being difficult - Google Translate has got fairly good at the concrete stuff. "Other plants worth noting are" is a perfectly good translation of Muita huomionarvoisia kasveja ovat. But dognabbit if you aren't even going to try, just leave the words untranslated.

This text is from a page about natural landscape areas - Lohjan perinnemaisemat - Lohja.

Even just looking in the dictionary got me most of them. Couldn't Google find a dictionary? Admittedly for several I couldn't find a common name in English.

maarianverijuuri - common agrimony, Agrimonia eupatoria
pihakurjenpolvi - cranesbill
jänönapila - hare's-foot clover, Trifolium arvense
tummatulikukka - mullein (Verbascum)
törrösara - Carex muricata
hakarasara - Carex spicata
mäkilemmikki - forget-me-not, Myosotis ramosissima
ketokäenminttu - Satureja acinos
mäkivirvilä - Vicia tetrasperma, lentil family
kangasajuruoho - wild thyme, Thymus serpyllum
pähkinäpensas - common hazel, Corylus avellana
mäkikaura - Helictotrichon pubescens

garden cucumber knee? dark fire flower (not actually called that)? hill pet?

It's trying harder, granted, but all it's doing is breaking down the component Finnish words and blindly translating them. Eg lemmikki does mean pet but it also means forget-me-not.

I don't think it got the right English names for any of those plants.

In an ironic twist, which is totally on topic, your post is the only thing on Google for "I don't need it posting results for Asian Ass Sluts every time I type an a"
