Hey folks, I'm relatively new here so I hope I post in the right subforum and don't break any rules, but I found this website and thought it might be useful to someone (It was to me)...
Under http://hortipedia.com you can find a relatively big wiki-style plant database (not directly permaculture related) which you can filter for different properties like hardiness, soil preference, water needs and so on. It also has lots of pictures so it might help you identfy or find a plant.
Hope this helps, cheers from Karlsruhe, Tobi

Thanks for that information. I have a book at home that I like because it categorizes the plants that way too. The problem is that all of the plants are listed by their Latin names only. Makes it difficult.
Thank you.

On first sight I thought so, too, but after surfing around a bit I found out, that you can also search for common names, and in the category "Plants by life form" there are also lists with CNs. Here is the link: Category: Plants by life form
Oh, and by the way, there are also french and german versions of the page...

Cheers, Tobi

I see how my wording confused you, my book is a pain because all plant names are in Latin. I love the site you told us about because you can view plants by their common names. It's great!

Ah, ok, misread you there... But the additional information might still be useful to others, so no harm done
 
Nothing? Or something? Like this tiny ad:
