NATIVE PLANT GARDENING RESOURCES

These are links I found useful while searching the web. (Sizes of downloadable PDF files are shown.) — Scott Knudsen
NOTE: This is a work in process. I will be adding to this list and refining it during the summer in 2006.
Native Plants in the Chesapeake Bay Area

Fairly comprehensive reference for native plants in our area. Available online and as a downloadable PDF file.
U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service. “Native Plants for Wildlife Habitat and Conservation Landscaping: Chesapeake Bay Watershed.” http://www.nps.gov/plants/pubs/chesapeake/

Photo gallery of Local Flora

Good collection of photos of regional herbaceous and woody plants in the site’s Flower Gallery.

Flora of the Washington-Baltimore Area. “DC Flora Flower Gallery.” http://persoon.si.edu/DCFlora/flowergallery/flowgal.cfm



Catalogs of vendors that I have found to be a helpful reference

Lower Marlboro Nursery http://www.lowermarlboronursery.com/catalog/A--B.html


(best overall for information, pictures, and speed of page loads)

Doyle Farm Nursery http://www.doylefarm.com/catalog.html


(good listing for quick lookup)

Elk Ridge NatureWorks http://www.elkridgenatureworks.com/prod01.htm


(good notes at bottom)

Hyla Brook Farm http://hylabrookfarm.com/hbfplantdescriptions.htm

Native plant societies and other conservation groups

Maryland Native Plant Society. http://www.mdflora.org

Pennsylvania Native Plant Society http://www.pawildflower.org/

Delaware Native Plant Society http://www/delawarenativeplants.org/

Delaware Nature Society http://delawarenaturesociety.org/



Conservation landscaping references

Bayscapes http://www.fws.gov/chesapeakebay/Bayscapes.htm


(has many good publications, including the one at the top of the page)

Plant information lookup by species

The two databases below are excellent, quick references for getting plant information (by species), especially when you do not have your own reference books handy.

Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. “Native Plant Information Network: Native Plants Database.” http://www.wildflower2.org/NPIN/Plants/plant.html



USDA, Natural Resources Conservation Service. “PLANTS Database.” http://plants.usda.gov/

Plant names database

A good reference when you remember part, but not all, of the scientific name for a plant. It is good when you remember an outdated taxonomic name for a plant but cannot remember the new name for a plant. (Example of the latter case: Senecio aureus = Packera aurea. I remember the old name “Senecio,” but I have often forgotten the new name “Packera.”)

IPNI. “The International Plant Names Index.” http://www.ipni.org/index.html
