Plant Database

The University of Connecticut has developed this site dedicated to the ornamental attributes, appropriate use and identification of landscape plants. This site is geared toward the teaching of landscape plants and contains valuable information for students, homeowners and plant professionals. At the core of this site are plant information pages that contain text, photographs, illustrations and latin name pronounciations. The plants listed in this resource are meant to create an awareness of the great variety of ornamental plants that will grow in USDA hardiness zone 6 or colder, and to encourage people to think about planting a greater variety of ornamentals. Users should be aware that some plants listed are not readily available and may actually be difficult to find. The interactive Plant Selector is available to allow users to search the University of Connecticut Plant Database to find trees, shrubs and vines which meet specific landscape situations and express particular ornamental traits. This will be added to the tools section of Research Resources Subject Tracer™ Information Blog. This will be added to Reference Resources Subject Tracer™.
