botanic meaning in Etymology Dictionary

1650s, from French botanique (17c.) or right from Medieval Latin botanicus, from Greek botanikos "of herbs," from botane "a plant, lawn, pasture, fodder." The Greek words seemingly have much more to do with pasturage than flowers; compare related botamia "pastures, meadows," boter "herdsman," boton "grazing beast."
