Calflora is 1. a website you can use to learn about plants that grow wild in California (both native plants and weeds); and 2. a nonprofit organization responsible for providing this service. Calflora is run by the team described above. Information in Calflora comes from many sources: public agencies, non-profits, scientists, private donors, and you!
You can enter the common or scientific name of a plant to find out about it. Or, use the name wizard to just enter part of a name and have the wizard make suggestions. The result is an illustrated table of plants that match the name you entered. Click one of the plants in the table to learn the details about that plant — in particular, where it’s been observed in California.

You can also choose a place and get an illustrated list of the plants that grow there. We call thatWhat Grows Here? You define “here” by picking a place on the map, or by choosing park boundary, place name, etc. Refine “here” by zooming in and out of the map, or drawing a polygon Then click SEARCH to get an illustrated list of plants known to grow “here.”
