Illustrated Plant Database

— Written By

With an NC State University web database, you quickly and easily can find landscape plants suited to your needs and growing conditions:

http://plants.ces.ncsu.edu

The illustrated database allows you to search plants by type, by size, by color, and by numerous other characteristics. For each plant, the web site provides scientific and common names, detailed descriptions of ideal growing conditions, and a wealth of other information. The site also alerts users about plants that have toxic properties.

What’s more, once you decide on a plant, the web site can connect you to a search resource to help you find nurseries in North Carolina that sell the plant.

For more information, contact your county center of N.C. Cooperative Extension.
