Hello there!
This website is absolutely amazing and I was curious to know if you had any open documentation available for developers to access your database.
I am a student in a web developer program and my group and I would like to build a web application that would utilize the information you have on this site.

Thank you!

Hi Aflor, thank you for the kind words about the site. The database is not available for download and we do not have an API available for accessing it.

Hi @Alfor,

Just a thought - if you're after the species data, then the Catalogue of Life (http://catalogueoflife.org/) does make its data available as a CSV download. You could download the genera you are interested in that way. The CoL doesn't list hybrids, however; you'd have to go to somewhere like the RHS for specific registers of different genera (i.e. orchids, liliums, etc.).

Kind Regards,
Joshua.
