Garden Explorer Plant Database

Garden Explorer Plant Database
 

The Garden Explorer enables you to access our living herbaceous and woody plant collections. This database is accessible from most PCs, smartphones and tablets with internet access. Our database currently contains 109 plant families, 450 genera, 2680 species and 1800 images. Annual flowers and vegetables are not accessioned and thus are not searchable in this database.

Use the Search attribute if you would like to see specific plants in The Gardens but don’t know their locations.  Four search-trait functions allow to you explore the plant collection on up to four levels simultaneously. Spelling is important when using scientific, trademark or common plant names. Results from a successful plant search will be displayed in a list. Click on any result to view plant location and accession number. Most search results include photos and other botanical and garden-use facts.

Use the Map attribute to zoom-in on a specific garden location (shown as an orange circle) in the Gardens. Click on that orange circle to populate a list of the plants in that area. Use the Names attribute to view plants alphabetically by scientific genus. The Features attribute to see a map of The Gardens that reveals location of memorial benches and current art sculptures.
