A program to help you identify a native or naturalized plant in Indiana.

Go to the program page


How to use

(This program is mostly intuitive, so only a few things are touched on here.)

Filters The key to identifying a plant is to use the filters. Simply select various attributes that you know, and the second column will only show the plants that fit the filters selected. Notice the "Number found" at the bottom of the column.
Picture type You can select which type of picture you would like to see for comparison. For instance, if you would like to see only flower pictures, select "Flower".
Common names To look at a list of common names for a particular plant, simply hover over the common name that is listed and a popup will show any alternate names that are known.
Zoom To get a closer look at the selected picture, use the mouse wheel to zoom in and out. Click and drag the picture to pan it.
ID info Some of the pictures are tagged with more information that will help in assisting with plant identification. Just hover over the picture, and if there is more info, it will pop up.
ID tips Click on the "ID tips" button and, if available, a .pdf file will be downloaded to your computer which has more detailed information about identifying that plant. If your browser is set to block popups, you'll get an error message and you'll need to unblock popups to get the file. Files currently available for:

Bittersweet

Columbine

Echinacea
