Types of Plants

Database: List of Plant Names, Grouped Alphabetically


Need to find information about a particular kind of plant? Search my database by clicking on the links below. You can search for all the different types of plants you may be interested in growing, either by common name or scientific name:

Databases may not be very useful to you, however, if you do not know the plant you are looking for by name. Consequently, I do offer other means of searching my website for plants, in lieu of the lists accessed via the links above.

For example, if you would prefer, instead, to browse through the different types of plants I cover based on their growing requirements (sun vs. shade, how moist a soil they like, etc.), please consult the following article:

Types of Flowers by Location: What to Grow Where

Or maybe you would rather search within classifications, such as the different kinds of trees, shrubs, etc.? If so, you'll want to browse through the following listing:

Plant Selection

Other folks may be visually oriented and prefer pictures. For them, I have supplied a photo gallery of plants that allows you to drill down for information. That is, let's say you want to look up a certain perennial. You would click on the picture in the gallery that represents the perennials, which happens to be Coreopsis. The page you come to will have links to information not only on Coreopsis, but other perennials, too. Here's the photo gallery:

Plant Pictures

Or maybe you'd prefer plant pictures organized by the color of their flowers, rather than by the types of plants they are? If so, here's the gallery for you:

Flower Pictures

Finally, some of you may have a particular kind of theme in mind for a garden. For example, you may be working on a cottage garden and need some ideas or some information on types of plants traditionally associated with cottage gardens. Such readers will probably find my Theme Gardens resource most useful.
