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 highly encourage you to attend a live demo on Tuesdays at 4pm ET. This will help to quickly orient you with all of our features of the My Plants Map tools.

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!

We’ve completed our transition to having Goodwill Industries handle our inventory, printing and shipping.

I am using Plants Map to create educational signage for my property, for benefit of grandchildren and those interested in plants, especially native trees and shrubs. I continue to add to my site with additional species and photos. I cannot imagine how I could do this without Plants Map.

Plants Map has been such a vital source in my gardening journey. It is the perfect tool to keep track of every important tree and plant you purchase for your landscape. It is a vast and educational community filled with reliable resources right at your fingertips. The ability to mark my garden favorites with tags allows me to include, show and share my love of nature with neighbors, friends and family. Plants Map provides me with the ease of organization and allows me to have full control of my garden that was otherwise not possible. Using Plantsmap.com has given me the confidence I need to take my abilities to the next level. Plants Map inspires me to get outside, meet new horticultural experts and be the best gardener I can be.

Our nonprofit, Backyard Abundance, has purchased dozens of plant tags from Plants Map for public landscapes in Iowa City. Their service has been fantastic with lots of hand-holding and thoughtfulness. The signs are excellent quality. I highly recommend them.

My garden has grown up with Plants Map. The trees and shrubs are all mapped on Plants Map. Each tags helps me quickly access information about that plant and its story. My backyard feels like a botanic garden with the durable tags from Plants Map!
