Other useful places to find out more about your plants & shrubs:

Floridata is a commercial website and features hundreds of Plant Profile pages which are descriptions, cultural instructions and photographs of many of our most popular landscape and garden plants. Each Profile contains small pictures, called icons that are displayed below the name of the plant. These icons provide a visual summary of the plant's characteristics. Floridata groups these into two groups, "Type and Features."


The Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) develops knowledge in Agricultural Resources, Human Resources, Natural Resources, Life Sciences and makes that knowledge accessible to sustain and enhance the quality of human life. This website has a great Information Center which includes topics such as Children's Gardening, Floriculture, Foliage, Home Gardening, Turfgrass, Trees & Shrubs, and a tremendous set of Plant Information Databases.

The USDA's PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories.
