The Plants of Virginia

by Staff on September 26, 2013

Virginia Plant IdentificationThe Plant Data Team at the USDA has provided all of us with a handy site where we can research the various plants we find in Virginia.  They have a searchable database with over 50,000 photos and details about plants’ scientific data.  The information on the site is contributed by viewers as well as scientists, conservationists, students, agricultural experts, and those who work in the sciences.  It’s a multi-faceted way to learn about unfamiliar plant species because you can begin with the portion of knowledge that you already have… for instance, a photo…  and then dig deeper into the habits and life cycles once you’ve identified them with their scientific names.
