Wicked Plants by Amy Stewart is a good popular science read about toxic/illegal/invasive plant species and breifly covers the history, medicine, science, and myths & legends pertaining to each specimen. The mythology/legends of plants are in no way the focus of the book, but are sprinkled in here and there for them when it applies.

A quick amazon search led me to Plant Lore, Legends, and Lyrics : Embracing the Myths, Traditions, Superstitions, and Folk-Lore of the Plant Kingdom. It was written in 1884, so is likely outdated but from the title it seems interesting at least.

I also came across this book that, according to its description, is an "entertaining and enlightening one-of-a-kind compendium of the world’s most amazing and bizarre plants, their history, and their lore"

I have an older version of this which is quite good. I'd love to see the newer edition with color photos.

Not sure if that's exactly what you're looking for, but they're great books.

It depends on soil type and moisture levels. Most of of those are indeed old world plants, though most of them can thrive in arid climates with water and proper soil. There are also many native analogues (same genus different species), and that book is a good jumping off point for their qualities.

For more regional herbals, this guy got me started. Or if you want the encyclopedia, this is unrivaled. There are more. But all of these, including Grieves, tells different parts of the same story.
