What are interactive plant labels?

Plants Map makes it easy and affordable to order custom, interactive plant tags or signs. They also have something you won’t find on other tags – a QR code that directly connects your plants to a smartphone. You can scan the code to edit notes and add photos to the plant page. Visitors to your garden can scan to read the story of your plant and see photos of it in all seasons.

Now anyone can add attractive, long-lasting plant identification to any landscape or plant collection.

To get started, sign up and add a few plants and then you can order custom tags that link to those plant pages. Learn more: What is Plants Map?

We have an extensive ‘Help’ section with posts that answer questions about our tags and signs and many other Plants Map questions. When people ask a new question, we try to write a blog post to answer that questions because we know that if we haven’t made it clear, then others probably have the same question! Here’s a link to all of the articles about Tags & Signs.

Can I customize the tags or signs?

Testimonials

I had an opportunity to tour the Plants Map gardens owned by Plants Map founders Tracy and Bill Blevins in Spotsylvania County, Va. in June 2017. I was greatly impressed by both the gardens and the application of Plants Map technology. I saw how QR codes provide a wealth of information that can be utilized by garden owners and visitors alike. I used an Apple iPad Pro to scan the codes, and immediately a wealth of information popped up about each plant. There were seasonal pictures to show how each plant looked during different times of the year, and information about the plant's origins (when planted), seasonal care, etc. I can see how botanical gardens and homeowners alike can use the technology. Price seems reasonable, and maintenance looks easy.

We donated several plants to our local community center in honor or memory of club members whose contributions had been significant and we wished to recognize. We ordered plant signs from Plants Map and they were perfect. Just the right size, just the right information, just the right price. We will definitely be using this service again!

Working with Plants Map for the tree signs in the Linthicum Walks Arboretum has been very easy, the signs are great and the webpages are a big hit. We use Plants Map as part of our tree identification and signage. Sponsors of our trees love the ability to link from the tree sign to the website for more information. One tree was sponsored by the parents of a couple recently married under their favorite tree in the arboretum. They were thrilled to have the tree sign link to the Plants Map page with a picture of the wedding!

Plantsmap.com has allowed our school to create a user-friendly data base of the Lower School's significant trees and shrubs so that teachers are able to access and share with the younger students. The tags also help our families and visitors to access this information. We also provide links to the Plants Map site on our school's website. We look forward to expanding our database as we plant new trees, as well.
