PlantFiles is getting a new look! Just in time for spring, we're rolling out a new look for the best online plants database. It will also work with your smart phones and mobile devices, so now you can take it with you on garden center visits or botanical garden tours. Questions or comments? Please post them here.

Plant Identification Discussion Forum

Communities > Forums > Plant Identification
See ALL posts.

Do you have a mystery plant or tree? Post an image (preferred) and/or a detailed description, and your fellow gardeners will help you figure out what it is. Once you have a firm ID, please be sure to mark your thread as "closed" to keep it easy for everyone to find the un-identified threads! Note: if it's a bug you're trying to ID, try our new Bug ID forum .

Need a good book to help you ID plants around your garden or out in the wild? Check out the Bookworm for field guides recommended by others.
