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. This is a great partnership and a win-win for both Plants Map as we continue to grow, and for the people participating in the job skills training program through Goodwill.

We love Plants Map and have many of our trees along our Grelen Trails labeled thanks to their service. If you are a plant lover, you definitely need to know about Plants Map!

We ordered Plantsmap's ID signs; the staff was extremely helpful, the ID signs were great quality and were delivered quickly. Don't hesitate to order from these folks!

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!

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.

When I order (usually at the last minute for some event) they are immediately there electronically to help with always good input and spirit! I really appreciate how fast the "proof" is reviewed by staff and how changes if needed are quickly communicated. Plantsmap cares about our mission of public education in the herb garden. More visitors commented or were seen with phones looking at the herb signs this year at the herb garden during the annual Louisa Heritage Day in April. With the QR codes it makes it so easy to add and edit each entry. Every year we add to the signs identifying herbs, plants, and trees and we can see that the public uses and enjoys them.
