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?

Testimonials

Plants Map is truly unique idea. The Cecil College and Horticulture Club was excited to be able to participate in this program. Our plant tags arrived quickly. Loading data into your own "Plants Map" is user friendly. This will make learning about the College Plants more interactive and fun.

At the University of Puget Sound we have a Native Species garden located inside a courtyard between two science buildings. The garden is unique in that it is home to native plants from the Pacific Northwest as well as other locations around the world with similar climate. Using the Plants Map site to catalog, then order interactive plant tags was very user friendly, and a great tool to showcase this hidden garden. The main idea behind using Plants Map was to allow students, staff, and visitors to interact with the garden, and learn about the plant material. Every summer, I choose a project for my student work crew to complete, and last summer the garden became fully interactive, and our students we able to learn about the plant material while they installed the signs. Plants Map interactive plant tags are a great tool, and we have plans to tag more plant material.

I teach a Mountain Ecology course at a boarding school for high school boys in Virginia. Over the years the students in this course have built and developed an Interpretive Trail on campus. After discovering Plants Map, I quickly realized it was a great way to create a digital record of the numerous tree ID signs that have been created over the years. We have also utilized PlantsMap's ID tags for numerous trees on the school's Front Lawn. Plants Map is a great tool to help my students generate content and create a reference database for others. The database is also proving to be instrumental as we seek Arboretum status with ArbNet.

"Best Present Ever!!" My husband's reaction to the Plants Map signs I gave him for Xmas. No one gets in our front door without a tour of his "signs." Best gift ever 💜

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!
