The site Plants of the World online Kew Gardens, located in the Royal Botanic Gardens in London, England, houses one of the largest botanical collections in the world. Known for its preserved plant specimens, it offers its collection online, free worldwide.
The project Plants of the World online started in March 2017 and plans to transfer 250 years of botanical knowledge to an open and accessible library. The database is user friendly and is accessible via desktop, mobile phone or tablet.
The search results are beautifully designed and easy to understand. These usually return images, illustrations and / or samples, along with information such as Latin name, common name, plant habit, varieties, appearance, fruits, uses and other data.
But it is not a simple database of plant identification. If you are looking for information about plants and fungi then this site is the right place. The database can be searched by genus, genus, family name, attribute or any word that describes a plant. The site language is unfortunately only English.
