Plant Image Search

ArbPIX (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.

Search Plant Image Database

Common keyword searches include: scientific name, common name, family, genus, species, cultivar, accession number (e.g., 14599), accession number and letter qualifier (e.g., 14599*A), description (e.g., fruit, flower, bud), and/or photographer.
