PlantNet|Download the iPhone APP from AppStore

[email protected] is an application that allows you to identify plants simply by photographing them with your smartphone. Very useful when you don't have a botanist on hand! [email protected] is also a great citizen science project: all the plants you photograph are collected and analysed by scientists around the world to better understand the evolution of plant biodiversity and to better preserve it.

[email protected] allows you to identify and better understand all kinds of plants living in nature: flowering plants, trees, grasses, conifers, ferns, vines, wild salads or cacti. [email protected] can also identify a large number of cultivated plants (in parks and gardens) but this is not its primary purpose. We especially need [email protected]’s users to inventory the wild plants, those that you can observe in nature of course but also those that grow on the sidewalks of our cities or in the middle of your vegetable garden!

The more visual information you give to [email protected] about the plant you are observing, the more accurate the identification will be. There are indeed many plants that look alike from afar and it is sometimes small details that distinguish two species of the same genus. Flowers, fruits and leaves are the most characteristic organs of a species and it is them that should be photographed first. But any other detail can be useful, such as thorns, buds or hair on the stem. A photograph of the whole plant (or the tree if it is one!) is also very useful information, but it is often not sufficient to allow a reliable identification.

At present [email protected] makes it possible to recognize about 20,000 species. We are still a long way from the 360,000 species living on earth, but [email protected] is getting richer every day thanks to the contributions of the most experienced users among you. Don't be afraid to contribute yourself! Your observation will be reviewed by the community and may one day join the photo gallery illustrating the species in the application.

The new version of [email protected] released in January 2019 includes many improvements and new features:
-The ability to filter recognized species by genus or family.
-The differentiated data revision that gives more weight to users who have demonstrated the most skills (in particular the number of species observed, validated by the community).
-The re-identification of shared observations, whether yours or those of other users of the application.
-The multi-flora identification that allows you to search for the photographed plant in all the flora of the application and not only in the one you have selected. Very useful when you are not sure what flora to look for.
-The selection of your favorite floras to access them more quickly.
-The navigation at different taxonomic levels in image galleries.
-The mapping of your observations.
-Links to many factsheets.

The web version of the application is also available at the following address:

    by Ellavador on July 4, 2022 at 10:49 pm

    This app is one of my favorite phone apps! I can easily identify plants and is ideal for foraging. I highly recommend this app to other curious people. I love hiking on trails and having a convenient, accurate way to identify plant species.

  • Great app

    So helpful!!

  • Just okay
    by LMC2018 on July 4, 2022 at 8:11 am

    I thought this app would identify the plant, provide history and plant care tips. It does not.

  • Great for Identifying your plants
    by JoePlantMomma on July 2, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    And when you properly identify your plants, you can then properly care for them and keep them happy and looking gorgeous.

    Will not load and not able to use camera to photo specimens.

  • High Regards
    by Western_PA on June 20, 2022 at 10:03 pm

    I was looking for a truly free app. I installed several, but they all wanted my credit card for their “free” trial. PlantNet is truly free. Thank you. However, PlantNet offers several really attractive options to me, the % rankings and the ability to confirm others’ submissions in particular, hence training the machine learning. But beyond what I personally like, it’s convenient, intuitive, and good for identifying plants- which is why I got it in the first place. No problems with stability, even though I’m running on an older operating system.

  • World of plants
    by El Learner on June 20, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Very good for identifying plants.

  • Love this app!
    by ❤️running on June 20, 2022 at 6:40 pm

    We moved into a new house last summer. The previous owners planted many beautiful flowering plants that I wasn’t familiar with. Plantnet identified the plants, then I could look up how to care for them. Very grateful for the app!

  • Fun and easy
    by Yuckymonkey on June 20, 2022 at 2:18 pm

    And a bit addictive

  • So thankful someone blessed the world with this service
    by EdwardBlake on June 18, 2022 at 11:58 pm

    What an awesome tool to make engaging with nature so much more educational and deep. And to do it for free is truly amazing

  • Makes plant ID fun
    by Flower liver on June 18, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    No more leafing through guidebooks and struggling with complex key system! I treasure this app!

  • By Far the Best Plant ID App I Have Used
    by PlantsAreSuperDope on June 18, 2022 at 5:19 pm

    This app has been truly amazing to use. The vast amount of data that it pulls from is easily narrowed down, but not too much. The programming that matches leaf shapes and details is incredible in its ability to identify almost any plant by one leaf. Love this app!

  • Get it!
    by Beadblues on June 18, 2022 at 4:10 pm

    Fabulous app!! Has helped me identify the weeds and save the flowers!!

  • Fantastic
    by Oilywax on June 17, 2022 at 4:20 pm

    Love this app. Best I’ve found for identifying plants. Way better than all the others.

  • Best App Ever!!!
    by Scarecrow1339 on June 16, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Highly accurate information and interactive as well. Positively identified plant life can be submitted to help others identify as well- to a degree anyway. This is the only app I went out of the way to see if there was a premium for, not because the app is bad but contrary, I wanted to see if it had even COOLER functions. I don’t think there is a premium. Which means all this is free and accessible for all. (As far as I can tell) So before you mistake an edible herb for a poisonous ☠️ herb, check this out.

  • Best free plant identifier!!
    by thatredheadmufukka on June 15, 2022 at 1:09 am

    Super awesome and easy to use. Don’t waste your time with any of that other garbage my boiiis & girls. Its legit. Sheeeeeeeshhhhh

    This is a great app. It allows me to identify plants as I walk through the woods.

  • Great app
    by MLtoot on June 12, 2022 at 4:29 pm

    This is a very helpful app. I have many wildflowers and weeds that take up residence on my property. I can easily identify them with this app.

  • Super app for quick flora identifications
    by LKway1 on June 12, 2022 at 3:32 pm

    Really easy to use and I appreciate the quick links to Wikipedia
