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!

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!

Brad Grimm Gardener June 12, 2017

The East Tennessee State University Arboretum recently worked with Plants Map on an order of 500 tree ID signs (the large signs, approximately 4 ¾ x 3 ¼ inches). This was a complex order, because our signs include common name, botanical name, plant family, and natural distribution for each species. We paid the extra set-up fee and included our University logo. The Plants Map signs also included the square Quick Response (QR) Code that link to our online plants pages. Throughout the order and production process, Bill Blevins and the other staff at Plants Map were quick to respond to all of our questions, requests, and concerns. The editing process went smoothly and we were able to review and approve the proofs before the signs were made. The production was done on an efficient time schedule. The signs are excellent. They were carefully packed and shipped. All were received in good condition. I am pleased with the high quality of the signs. They are neat, easily legible, and attractive. We used the long stakes from Plants Map and added one rivet to reinforce the adhesive provided with the stakes. I have recommended these signs to other Arboreta and would also recommend them to individual gardeners and tree lovers for their personal collections. Not only are they great quality in anodized aluminum signs, but they are also provided at a lower cost than offered by other sign companies.

Besides their excellent plant label signs, the other big advantage of the Plants Map system is their on-line plant lists which are posted on PlantsMap.com at no additional charge. For the ETSU Arboretum, we have posted photos of some 450 trees and shrubs in our campus plantings. We've added selected links with each tree species name and photos, which link to in-depth information on each species or cultivar provided by trusted botanical websites. The Plants Map web pages are designed to make it easy to upload photos and links, and their staff assisted us in bulk uploads to our online list.

Plants Map fills a unique niche in the sphere of botanical gardens, arboreta, and home gardens. They provide top-quality signs and incorporate these with excellent on-line plant species listings. Their signs are less expensive than others of this quality, and their service is first-rate. The option to include photos, stories and links at one's own Plants Map garden listing is tremendous. The direct QR code link from the signs to the online plant list is a key function. I recommend Plants Map to anyone who wishes to document, label and share information on their living botanical collections, gardens, or arboreta.

I wanted handsome, long lasting plant tags that could link me to more complete information on each of my 300+ trees AND geolocate each plant thru the use of QR codes and an online data bank. Plants Map fit the bill, and so did Bill Blevins, the owner. He and Tracy (wife & partner) was more than helpful in guiding me towards making it happen. If you're looking for plant tags that can do more than just offer the name of a plant, I'd highly recommend these fully functional tags.

Thanks fo much for all your help putting together my tag/stake order! Your tags are beautiful and add such a special, informative touch to our garden. Warm Regards, Pat

Pat Holder Lifelong gardener, Asheboro, NC May 30, 2016

We have created almost 60 Plantsmap signs to describe the native plants we have recently installed at our organization's largest wetlands restoration site at Riverpoint Park in Norfolk, Virginia. The Plantsmap signs are very affordable yet are high quality and have held up extremely well over several years in and near the saline marsh environment. Our restoration site has become as much a teaching site as a restoration project, so the Plantsmap signs have been a wonderful addition because they can quickly and easily educate the public about the native plants. The QR code feature on each sign is fantastic, as it enables us to create a custom page describing each plant. These web pages can provide photos of the plants' flowers, fruits and foliage during several seasons, and detailed plant info if the visitor wants to learn more.
