Plant Image SearchArbPIX (the Arnold Arboretum plant image database) is a free resource of historical and contemporary images of accessioned plants. Images detail structural characteristics (morphology) and seasonal aspects (phenology) of temperate woody plants in the living collections. These images are shared and used for educational purposes in classrooms, garden clubs, and homes around the world.
Images are owned or held by The Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University, are shared for non-commercial use with attribution under the terms of the Creative Commons BY-NC-SA license, and are a collection within the visual archives. Any other use, including requests for print publication or commercial reuse, requires permission of the Arnold Arboretum Horticultural Library (email).
Join our TreeVersity (hosted by Zooniverse) community to add categorizing data to each image and share your passion for plants with Arboretum researchers. Your efforts will improve the search and filter capabilities of this public resource and add to a repository of knowledge about the plants we grow.
