A photographic collection and brief reference to help identify
Wildflowers - Mushrooms - Lichens & Moss ...found in New York

Enjoy the Photographs

Although I focused on providing images better suited for identification purposes rather than artistic value they are still are nice to look at. Every once in a while I've managed a really nice shot but you'll need to browse through the site and decide for yourself which is art worthy.

Discover a Name

The photos are large with a brief bit of information to aid identification of the growth you found The hardest part of gaining knowledge about a subject can be discovering the name. Once you have the name an internet search will cough up countless web sites with all sorts of information about the edibility, medicinal uses, magical properties and more.

A private collection

The photos are proof of discovery, without a pic it didn't happen.
NOTE: I'm only a hobby wildflower hunter so a few of my species identifications may be off. I'm pretty positive about Genus and if you find one that's incorrect I'll send you a big bag of nothing with my thanks.
