This database is focused on plants used in horticulture, both native and non-native, and includes over 7,000 species. Uniquely, it has information on many popular cultivars, including about how they were originally propagated (i.e. the parentage of a hybrid plant), details which are often not readily available. Making it especially useful, each species page has a valuable in-depth description of the plant’s noteworthy characteristics, culture requirements, and suggestions for use in a landscape setting. In addition to searching for information by species, plant selection searches can be filtered using standard criteria like bloom time, maintenance needs, and moisture requirements.
