Flower Identification: common and botanical names of flowering plants.
Flowering plants in this data base are divided into seven (7) groups:̣ ̣(1) Trees, (2) Shrubs (bushes), (3) Vines, (4) Bulbs, (5) Aquatic plants, (6) Cactus and succulents and (7) Annual, Perennials... The last group is big and it contains mostly annuals and perennials. Beside annuals, perennials, you can find many other plants such as ornamental grasses, indoor house plants and tropical plants in this group. Recently, I added some videos of whole plants, so you can recognize them easier.
All plant names are listed in English. Because there are many names for a plant, I try my best to use the most common name. However, each plant has a unique botanical name in Latin, you can use plant's Latin name to search the web for more information about a specific flower.
Plant cold hardiness is the ability of plants to tolerate cold temperature. In the US, you can find the cold hardiness at the USDA website.
Grasses: Grass is the common word that generally describes monocotyledonous green plants. They include some more specialized crops such as lemongrass, as well as many ornamental plants. Grasses in this site are ornamental grasses which are used in landscaping.
Weeds are any plant that crowds out cultivated plants, any unwanted plants that grown in the lawns, gardens or crop fields.
