Im trying to identify more native plants in my region. Does anyone know the name of these plants. Also, does anyone know of a site that you can upload pictures and they let you know what type of plant it is.






For the one above, Im looking for the name for the one on the right... it also has a really sugary smell to it.



and for this one im looking for the main one in front.

Any info would be great.

Thanks!

Kenny, you'll definitely need photos for an ID. this might help for uploading.
BTW, I moved your thread into one of the new forums, 'plants'.

The first one looks like Yucca, not sure what species. Knowing your region might help with identification.

The third might be Eriogonum, but again not sure of the species.

Kenny, you can enter climate/location info so it's always visible, like this

The fruit on the spike of the first plant definitely looks like yucca pods. It could be Yucca elata possibly.

Try to get us some more detailed photos of the foliage from the other two. The second looks like it could possibly be yerba santa? And I agree that the third looks like an Eriogonum.
