NameThatPlant.net currently features 3,852 plants* (you can browse the lists below) and 24,343 images from almost 300 photographers. For 2,030 plants, the pronunciation of at least one of its scientific names or synonyms is demonstrated by the click of a button.
Check out the gotcha's! Explore the articles, links, and recommended books....
On NameThatPlant.net, plants are shown in different seasons (not just in flower), and you can hear Latin names spoken, look up botanical terms, get a feel for various natural communities, and discover botanically interesting places to visit.
Now 15 years old and knit together with over 40,000 lines of database code, NameThatPlant.net is still a work-in-progress. Your comments and/or corrections make the site more useful for us all!
(especially right now, after I've just nudged the database through six challenging software upgrades, hoping that I haven't broken something in the process...)
