Helpful resources for identifying wildflowers

2. Plants of Washington

For more comprehensive coverage, the Plants of Washington online image collection contains over 63,000 images of plants and lichens of Washington. Most species have multiple images, in many cases including photos of details needed to distinguish the species from others and range maps that can lead you into the specimen records for each species. The webpage also includes a “random access identification key” to assist in identifying unknown species.

This resource has been built by many individuals contributing photos; if you like wildflower photography and want to contribute your photos, we would be happy to have them! The image collection is accessible anywhere you have wifi or cell signal, although a desktop computer delivers the best experience.
