Database of Native Plants from UT-Austin Friday, 28 September 2007 3:19 pm

Posted by Dongmei in biology, botany, databases, Internet Resources.

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center, at the University of Texas at Austin, has a database of native plants (http://www.wildflower.org/plants/) with some really nice searching options.

You can do the basic searching by name or family (the search function suggests names as you type), there’s also a great search that allows you to search by state, light requirements, soil moisture, duration, bloom characteristics, and color.  Results are presented in a table that includes the scientific and common name of the plants as well as images of the plants.

You may also want to check out the other links from the front page of the Native Plants Database, like the collection of how-to articles, the glossary of botanical terms, and the slide show of popular regional wildflowers.  I’m sure that you’ll find this database is quite useful.
