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!

Each plant has a portrait with descriptions, pictures, and links.

Browse plants from A to (by scientific name).

Looking for something particular? Search by Common/Scientific name.
