Flower encyclopedia

Tap the "Flower" button on any photo to be presented with information about the flower:
- a map of the flower's geographic distribution
- photos of the flower's relatives
- the flower Genus name (common and Latin)
- the flower Family name (common and Latin)
- its identifying features
- a list of related species
- information on edibility

Note, serious botanists be advised that FlowerPedia aims to enlighten casual lovers of flowers, using minimal botanical jargon. While accurate, it is not a scientific encyclopedia. 

Flower identification helper

Do you have trouble identifying flowers? It isn't yet possible to automagically identify a flower from a photo alone, but you can now do the next best thing: identify flowers based on a few simple parts of their anatomy, such as sepals, petals and stamens. It's clever, fun - and fully explained in the app's Help section! FlowerPedia helps identify flowers down to the genus level (a group of closely related species). 

No internet connection required

You can browse FlowerPedia's entire flower database anywhere: even when you're out hiking, bushwalking, trekking or sitting comfortably in an airplane, because it does not require a network connection. The database, including all photos of flowers are included in the application.
