      The use of native plants in restoration efforts and home gardens is an important conservation strategy. Up to now,
      the Jepson Herbarium has contributed to this effort through the publication of horticultural information in The
      Jepson Manual. To increase our support of native plant horticulture, the Herbarium has developed a horticultural
      database that provides new and innovative ways to access the large amount of morphological and horticultural data
      that already exists for ~3000 taxa in The Jepson Manual.

      Native plant enthusiasts are now able to make personalized queries and create customized lists of plants that may
      grow well and suit particular needs in their gardens. The database contains information on plant name, climatic
      zone, environmental conditions, life-form, flower color, and many more characters. Possible database queries
               What plants will grow well in a particular climate zone?
               What plants will grow well in a particular climate zone if they have moderate summer water?
               What plants will grow well in my shady back yard and sunny front yard?
               Do cultivars exist for a particular species?

      You may access the horticultural database through the Online Interchange (
      interchange.html) or directly at:
