plant databases

Butler University Friesner Herbarium

A digital collection project to link label information from our Indiana specimens with images in a searchable electronic format.  

Illinois Wildflowers

Wildflower and other botanical identification information. 

Indiana University Herbarium > Consortium of Midwest Herbaria

A digital collection at the state and regional level with images of each preserved plant specimen as well as photos of live plants for most Indiana species. The archive is searchable by scientific name and taxonomic placement, common plant names, location, the name of the person who collected it, and plant characteristics.


Look up, view a photo and read about the over 6,800 plants which are growing or have been grown in the Kemper Center display gardens (plus selected additions) by scientific name, common name and/or selected plant characteristics.

usda plants database

Provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories.

The IPAC Terrestrial Plant Rule Fact Sheet publication

The IPAC Terrestrial Plant Rule Fact Sheet publication

The Terrestrial Plant Rule (312 IAC 18-3-25) designates 44 species of plants as invasive pests in the State of Indiana. Effective April 18, 2020, this rule makes it illegal to sell, gift, barter, exchange, distribute, transport, or introduce these plants in the State.

The Invasive Plant Advisory Committee offers the this helpful Terrestrial Plant Rule Fact Sheet publication to answer some key questions about this rule. More Information about the TPR and other state level invasive plant rules can be found on the IDNR website & the Purdue Extension publication: What Nurseries Need to Know About the Invasive Species Regulation

More information on reporting invasive plants can be found here.

Indiana's "Most Wanted" Invasive Plant Pests

The "Most Unwanted" Invasive Plant Pest Lists are compiled by the Indiana Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey (CAPS) Committee. There are lists for insects, mollusks, nematodes, pathogens, and plants. The lists identify exotic and/or invasive species, pests regulated by state or federal laws, and distribution of pests that may or may not be present in the state of Indiana.   These species have the potential to threaten cultivated and natural plant communities.
