Editor's Note: This comprehensive list is compiled and updated by Friend of the Garden volunteer Barbara Clark. We don't think you'll find a more complete list of websites dedicated to plant identification and information anywhere! Thanks, Barb!

Here's Barb's bio - My interest in flowers and photography began by walking the Ozark Greenways trails. Seeing many unknown plants, both along the paths and in my yard from spreading seed, I began trying to identity each one. This became easier after I received a digital camera. Now I can look at a computer photo and compare it with one found on the Net.  From such searching, I have an ever growing list of Web sites. These can be viewed HERE. One plant was unknown for 2 years.  The  Nathanael  Greene/Close Memorial Parks were first seen while walking the South Creek Greenway Trail.    My interest in the gardens grew after picking up a Friends of the Garden bochure at the Mizumoto Japanese Stroll Garden and talking with George Deatz. The development and growth of both Parks, which are now called, the Springfield Botanical Gardens, has been very impressive. With more gardens and attractions planned, I am so looking forward to photographing  the  beautiful plants and flowers.
