Often when I am researching our database for a particular plant, there may be limited information and no photo. Since I don't have the plant (yet) myself, I don't have a photo to add. I note that often folks use photos that are apparently not copyrighted, but am unclear where one actually finds those photos? I'd be happy to take the time to nab a photo now and again to add to the database.
I want to live in a world where the chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.

wikicommons, flickr, government plant databases...just to name a few. Be sure to make sure they are available to share and to properly assign the correct license and attribution when uploading them here.

You can contact the grower. For example Terra Nova said I could use their pictures as long as I gave credit to them.
