The Q&A Archives: unfamiliar w/a plant

Question: I have a picture of a plant and don't know what kind it is(would like to find it's name to purchase) and also I don't know how to submit this picture to u. any suggestions?


Answer: We can't receive photo attachments on the forum but if you can post the picture on the web (there are several outlets such as photo bucket or you tube) we can probably identify the plant for you. Failing that, provide us with the most complete description you can and we will do our best to identify it for you. Start with where it is growing (sun or shade), whether it is woody or herbacious; what is the leaf shape and size?; does it flower?, if so what season; describe the shape and color of the flower, etc.

Hope to hear from you soon!
