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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
