Plant Identification Websites?

rwindiana(z5 IN)January 1, 2007

Hello everyone, it's been a very long time since I've been on here. I didn't know where to put this because there are so many forums! Anyway, currently I'm in Texas and I have been trying to identify some plants online with little luck. I just don't know how to search and find the right sites I guess. Is there any free guides for identifying plants online?

Not sure if you want trees, shrubs, or herbaceous plants. Think these are all geared to native plants, but maybe they'll help:

for trees

for flowers
http://www.ct-botanical-society.org/galleries/galleryindex.html

Also, especially if you can post a photograph, you try using GW's Name that Plant forum.

A Texas A & M Univ. site that has several hundred photos of Texas native herbaceous plants is listed below. Enter search parameters or click on "List all Plants" at bottom of page

For info on Texas native shrubs: http://aggie-horticulture.tamu.edu/ornamentals/nativeshrubs/indexscientific.htm
A site for trees is also available.

Another source of native plant photos, indexed by flower color and leaf arrangement, is: http://www.missouriplants.com/index.html

I think the U of Missouri has the best one but alas during an up date I lost all my bookmarked sites. Maybe someone else knows it.
Meanwhile i want to thank everyone for helping me get some more bookmarked sites. Really need them.
thanks

I know you asked for plant ID sites, but I thought you might be interested in this particular website, too. I often have trouble identifying reseeders and other seedlings I've grown (if I "forget" to tag my seed containers). This site is enormously helpful in identifying seedlings, and there is even a section of weed seedlings, too.

I need to post one from my state...http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/depts/hort/consumer/factsheets/
This site keeps getting better and better. I also use the USDA site and find the distribution maps to be particularly useful.
