All net proceeds from the sale of this app goes to support botanical education, research, and development of plant identification tools.


Easy, quick identification of over 2,950 northern California wildflower species. This includes NW California and the Great Basin region of California.

93% of non-grasslike flowering plants known to grow wild in Northern California

Over 9,100 color photos

Perfect for farmers, nature lovers, conservationists, hikers, botanists, students,
teachers, wildflower enthusiasts, gardeners, nursery owners, or anyone curious about the natural world.

All photos in the app; no need for an outside connection.

Built on 22 years of experience creating interactive plant identification software.

One of 30 wildflower apps we expect to release in coming weeks which will cover 18 western and central states and 4 SW Canadian provinces.

HOW IT WORKS:

Select plant characteristics that match the plant to be identified

Select any characteristic in any order, from over 50 lists of characteristics

Characteristics defined, with detailed scientific illustrations

With each choice the list of possible plants shrinks, getting to one species with about 3 to 6 attributes.

The app suggests lists based on ease of use, effectiveness, and remaining species

Confirm identifications by comparing with photos or descriptions

Plant book references with page numbers provided for each species


ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

An interactive glossary of botanical terminology with scientific illustrations

Access to all data for each species

Alphabetize the species list by either common or scientific name or search by entering a name.

In-application documentation is available by tapping Menu > Help, or printing from http://flora-id.org/?page_id=247


The apps are based on our comprehensive interactive keys for PCs, which are subsets of the largest and most extensive database of plant characteristics produced anywhere. We sincerely appreciate the individuals, agencies, and institutions over the years that have graciously allowed us to include their copyrighted plant photos in our programs. Even with over 250 sources of photos, not all are of the highest quality. They are the best available and are included here for the help they provide for correct identifications.


Our keys run in software by XID Services. Richard Old of XID Services has produced a PC version, 1200 Weeds of North America, which is the most comprehensive weed identification reference in North America.
