Identify Your Plants Via E-mail

By Charlie Nardozzi

It happens even to the most knowledgeable gardeners: You see a plant you like but you don't know the name of it, and your gardening friends don't know what it is either. Sometimes even a local Master Gardener or garden center employee can't figure it out. So where do you go to identify the plant?

The Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas, Austin, has a solution. They have a new program called "Mr. Smarty Plants." You can ask questions online for free and send them digital images of your mystery plant to identify. They ask for your geographic location, the site where you found the plant, and a number of images of details such as leaves, stems, flowers, fruit, as well as the entire plant.

For more information on Mr. Smarty Plants, go to: Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center .
