Gallery of Local Plants
This gallery is of plants you might see in your area, including some common roadside plants.
Some of these plants are native, some are alien (also called exotic).
A handful of the portrayed natives are rare in NC, having a state status of endangered, threatened, or special concern.
Many of the alien plants are invasive and merit attention. Please avoid planting invasive species.
Do you have pictures you'd like to share?
Help others recognize and appreciate your favorites.
We'd like to add more portraits of different NC plants.
Send your photos of buds, blooms, leaves, and seedpods to:
tom @ ncwildflower.org
Each plant has a portrait with descriptions, pictures, and links.
Looking for something in particular? Google the Gallery!
Thanks to a spectacular array of photographs, we were able to put together a special view of native North Carolina orchids. Photos are used with permission of DR McAdoo (ncorchid @ yahoo.com) and other society members. Thank you very much! :)
