What are interactive plant labels?

Plants Map makes it easy and affordable to order custom, interactive plant tags or signs. Our signs have something you won’t find on other tags – a QR code or NFC chip that directly connects your plants to a smartphone. Touch the chip or scan the code to open the plant’s unique page on PlantsMap.com and then you can 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.

Testimonials

I love these tags! Being a home gardener, they are not only durable and affordable, but they link to the pages that I use to track what is in my gardens and how are they growing. I have the ability to put exactly the information I want on the tags -- In my case Latin name, Common name and then using "TEXT" I include whether the plants are native to my county, my state etc. Plants Map is one of my favorite tools in my gardens here on Indigo Lane.

Plants Map is a dream come true! We have staked our garden plants at the fairgrounds with the common name, scientific name, QR code, and a line of text such as our organization name and/or In Memory Of (or In Honor Of). We also have staked trees and some statues near the gardens. Folks walking through the area are impressed with the tags as they want to know more about the plants in the gardens. Can't say enough good things about Plants Map!!!!!!

Plantsmap.com has allowed our school to create a user-friendly data base of the Lower School's significant trees and shrubs so that teachers are able to access and share with the younger students. The tags also help our families and visitors to access this information. We also provide links to the Plants Map site on our school's website. We look forward to expanding our database as we plant new trees, as well.

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 love having all the trees identified. We have a bit of property and have purchased a number of combination trees. It was impossible to keep track of what was what. Now, we can not only see all the different varieties but I can track their location on the Plants Map website. Everyone always wants to know where I got the great tags!!!
