Identifying unknown species
I have little background in botany, and I'm trying to identify every plant species in the few miles around where I live (in Massachusetts, if that helps). I'm still struggling to find a way to find the proper names for plants based on their characteristics. I've taken a couple of samples but can't find a resource which will help me narrow down what they could be based on their traits. Can someone help me out here?
I'm starting with the plants growing through our gravel driveway, but will soon move on to bushes and flowers and mushrooms and ferns and trees etc.
