This search utility isn't intended to compete with other websites such as CalPhotos or Calflora. It's only for convenience to view available information about the pictures in the database such as the photographer and where the photo was taken. Below are some recommendations for other websites with much more substantial information about plants and sophisticated search features:

  • CalPhotos, University of California at Berkeley collection of more than 250,000 photos of plants, animals, fossils, people and landscapes from around the world.
  • Calflora, focused on plants growing in California, particularly good for identifying which plants are native and non-native to California.
  • CAL-IPC, California Invasive Plant Council, mission is to protect California wildlands from invasive plants through restoration, research and education.
