Plant Base Online (beta)

Advanced Search:

Select from the criteria below, in any combination:



Only select the criteria that you need, leaving the others. At least one of the criteria must be chosen.

Plants are listed when all the criteria given above are true.

Fewer criteria will result in more plants being returned.

Results are always listed by the current botanical name, though name searches will also check for synonyms.

Names are matched from the beginning and all plants containing the search term are returned. For example "Rhodo" will list everything under Rhodochiton, Rhododendron, Rhodohypoxis and Rhodotypos.

You can use * (asterisk) as a "wild-card" anywhere in the name.

Cultivar names may be entered with or without enclosing single-quotes, though including them might give slightly more precise results.

Please remember that many plant characteristics should only be treated as guidelines. Sizes and cold hardiness are notoriously unreliable, as they can vary considerably depending on regional conditions.
