(Plant Identification for everyone) Home
See it and ID it
This site is designed to make plant identification easy everyone – from beginners to experts.
Our approach is to present picture lists of small groups of plants, so it is easy to pick out the one you’re looking at. We have two strategies:
1. Favorite Walks – we show only plants you’ll see on a particular walk, or in a small area. By the time you say whether you’re looking at a tree, a shrub, or a flower, you’ve got a nice short list to choose from.
2. Plant Groups – we show only a particular plant group, such as “Marin Thistles”, or “Acorns you’ll find in Marin”. Our short picture list points out how you can tell these similar plants apart.
